2013 Hackathon

In September 2013 The Next 36 held its first-ever hackathon for Canada’s top student innovators. Hosted concurrently by Google's Toronto and Waterloo offices, students competed against one another during an intense 18-hour event themed on wearable computing.  Over 100 young developers put their skills to the test to build software for hardware on devices including the Myo, Kiwi Wearables and the Pebble smartwatch. Prizes were valued over $1500, and included cash, Myos, Pebble smartwatches, and invitations to N36's National Selection Weekend.
