An Eventbrite invite currently sold out, but on Friday, January 17th, hundreds of computer hackers will descend on downtown Detroit at the Qube for the third annual Hackathon hosted by MHacks, a University of Michigan based group, part of “an umbrella organization” dubbed MPowered Entrepreneurship that provides entrepreneurial opportunities for students who enjoy manipulating code.

According to Dylan Hurd, MPowered Entrepreneurship spokesperson, “MHacks III, a hackathon (short for hacking marathon like no other, is a 36-hour period during which students from universities and high schools across the country work together in teams of up to four to create, or hack, anything from a mobile app to a website to a physical product.”

User experience is the outcome for teams competing. “Whether an avid programmer or first-timer, hackers of all skill levels from all backgrounds come together to build, collaborate, and learn. Instructional workshops are presented throughout, both for beginners to get started as well as for advanced students to augment their skills,” Hurd said.

Last year the event was held in Ann Arbor. Bringing it to the Motor City allows Detroit to show off local talent and welcome those nationwide. The competition downtown also showcases redevelopment that affords locals and visitors amenities that rival great cities everywhere.
