TigerHacks is a 36 hour hackathon hosted at the University of Missouri - Columbia, Missouri. From October 13th-15th, hundreds of passionate students from around the midwest will gather together to use technology to rethink journalism and media. This weekend of collaboration will allow for programmers, designers, and people interested in learning technology to build something new, while also meeting great companies and making new memories. Whether you are a budding programmer cub or an experienced panther, we will see you at TigerHacks!
From fake news detection, to social networking, to tracking personal data, the role of tech in media is becoming increasingly important. This year TigerHacks is partnering with the University of Missouri Reynolds Journalism Institute to focus on new approaches to communicating, connecting, and influencing people. Teams will be awarded prizes for innovative projects in the field of media and journalism. This multidisciplinary collaboration has the potential for a truly unique hackathon experience, and we know that the ideas will be stronger than ever!
