Jolt Hackathon Delivers

Learning and Meeting People

Participants compete in a Jeopardy-style, FinTech-themed contest, completing technical puzzles of increasing difficulty and point value.

Not an expert? Not a problem!

On-site game masters respond in real-time to provide a fun, dynamic, responsive experience for the contestants to ensure everyone has a great time while learning to deploy new skills in a collaborative environment.

Change the World

Okay, so maybe not. But it could change your world.

My experience was primarily in mainframe languages like Cobol. I was nervous about working in the cloud. I learned so much and I actually solved the first challenge for my team. It was a fantastic learning experience.

Jessica finds some of the best caterers in Little Rock for amazing food the whole weekend.

Last time, there was even a candy buffet and a surprise middle-of-the-night root beer float bar! (Did I mention we have a kegerator with delicious Lost Forty beer on tap?)

I have participated in numerous hackathons around the country, but the JOLT Hackathon was one of the best-planned, best-organized and best-executed events that I have attended.

And, of course, there are prizes and awards for the winners and recognitions are made throughout the program for the first team that solves unique or particularly challenging puzzles.

These are just some of the great experiences you will have at the JOLT Hackathon on February 27th.

So what are you waiting for?!? Register your team today or tell your employer to register a corporate team. JOLT is just around the corner. You can't afford to miss it.
