It's Boulder Startup Week and we're bringing back our noteworthy Hack the Dot. A Hack the Dot is a two-hour hackathon where coding school students, junior developers, experienced developers, marketers, designers and curious web people come together to build ideas around a domain name. Our events are meant to be a quick and fun way to build a humorous (and functional) product quickly while meeting people in your tech/startup community.

There will be pizza. And probably beer.

What to Bring / How to Prepare:

• Bring your laptop (fully charged). Bring your charger just in case.


• Install the Atom text editor. Go here: https://atom.io/

• Setup a github.com account

How does it work?

Step 1: Attendees are broken up into random teams.

Step 2: The teams are provided with the same undisclosed domain name by Name.com, arbitrary and often hilarious.

Step 3: Teams have just two hours to come up with a functioning site inspired by that domain. The team builds the most creative and fun idea for the domain wins.

Participants will be judged on four criteria: (1) functionality, (2) design, (3) humor, and (4) creative domain name interpretation.

What do you get at the event?


How much does it cost?

It’s FREE!
