It’s not! Thanks to the Remo platform and local virtual experience experts Lunchpool
, we will be hosting this hackathon virtually. Due to the indoors nature of a traditional hackathon with 100s of participants in close proximity, we chose not to pursue an in-person format due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As East TN heads to Phase 3 by the time of the hackathon, we will have a limited number of organizers on-site physically together to ensure that we can diagnose any potential problems that arise for the weekend / provide support for our participants; but 100+ events indoors are still not the best idea.
