More than a thousand hackers descended on the Manhattan Center in New York City over the weekend to build the best apps that can come out of a 20-hour period, and now is the time we see the fruits of their labor.
Each team has 60 seconds to present their app onstage, in front of a room full of fellow hackers, as well as a panel of local judges. 104 teams are set to present, and you can watch all of them in the live stream embedded above.
What’s at stake? The judges will rank each app on a scale from 1 to 5, and the apps that get a score of 3 or above will be awarded with two free tickets to Disrupt NY. The top prize winner will get $5,000 and the opportunity to pitch onstage at Disrupt. Also, a number of API partners are set to give out cash and other awards.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a 2015 tech event without real-time social media coverage of all kinds. Our Hackathon co-host Tarikh Korula has a Meerkat stream in progress from the Hackathon stage right here, and you can follow tweets and Instagrams with the hashtag #hackdisrupt.
