Introducing the TechCrunch Disrupt SF ’18 Virtual Hackathon

TECHCRUNCH We’ve told you that TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco 2018 is going to be the biggest, most ambitious Disrupt ever — and we’re serious. So serious, in fact, that we’re super-sizing the Hackathon, taking it online and making it global. Now thousands of the world’s most talented developers, programmers, hackers and tech makers can participate and submit their hacks from anywhere in the world. If you know Disrupt, you know the Hackathon. It’s where hundreds of talented tech creators enter a 24-hour frenzied sprint to develop amazing products. Products like Quick Insurance — the easiest way to purchase an insurance product for all your valuable stuff (Disrupt Berlin ’17); Alexa Shop Assist — lets you ask Alexa where to find products in a store (Disrupt SF ’17) and reVIVE — a VR solution that provides both a diagnostic and treatment mechanism for ADHD (Disrupt NY ’17) — all previous Hackathon winners. Now imagine the possibilities when thousands of highly motivated coders, hackers and programmers around the world focus their talents in a global Hackathon. “Epic” doesn’t even begin to describe it. As you can imagine, an event this size requires substantially more time than 24-hours. More details will be unveiled in the coming weeks, but here’s the basic gist of how it’s all going to work. But before you read any further, be sure to sign up for any virtual Hackathon...

Join TechCrunch at our 1st Annual Winter Party

TECHCRUNCH If you’re based in the SF Bay Area, you’re likely familiar with the annual party we host with August Capital every summer. After 12 years, that event still sells out fast and gathers top investors and founders in Silicon Valley for an evening of networking and fun.  In keeping with that spirit, TechCrunch will be hosting our 1st Annual Winter Party in San Francisco and add a special spin to the  gathering.  Since we’ve retired the Crunchies, we think it’s a no-brainer to echo our late awards show in a tongue-in-cheek way. Not only will you enjoy an...
