About #thecompetition

A geek-revolution to radically change the San Joaquin Valley.

59DaysOfCode’s #thecompetition returns to pit the best developers, designers, and entrepreneurs against one another in a giant geek-tastic battle. We start with the Kickoff Event, followed by almost two months of frenzied typing and clicking, and end with the Expo, a huge showcase where the entries are judged, juried, and declared (for those lucky few), winners. And yes, of course there are amazing prizes.

There are two categories: Classic competitors will compete as they always have, without boundaries. ignite competitors will solve a problem and set the world on fire. You, as a competitor, can start from scratch or use your project already in progress.

59DaysOfCode created the most unique and vibrant technology community in the nation. We are the catalyst for changing business, changing communities, and changing lives. This year, #thecompetition will grow the geek community and use our vast brain power to do a little good and revolutionize the San Joaquin Valley.

#thecompetition is 59DaysOfCode's signature event. It is how we started, and now, it is how we change the world. It is the one event that smashes together everything we do: hackathons, expos, speakers, education, and community.
