In the next few weeks, summer will be winding down and your calendars will start looking more and more like a Tetris board. We, here at MapQuest, are no exception. So before the madness ascends, we thought we’d take a second to fill you in about some of our upcoming adventures. We think they’re pretty cool.

Come September, MapQuest will be packing our bags and heading to Irving, Texas, and San Francisco to sponsor two national hackathon events, as well as guest speak at a worldwide API & digital innovation event:

  • Verizon’s Hack Day in Irving, Texas, on September 10, 2016

  • TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon in San Francisco on September 10-11, 2016

At both hackathon events, MapQuest will be offering API workshops, free on-site help from MapQuest’s top developers, loads of free MapQuest swag and premium prize giveaways, such as $5,000 to a top hacker team at TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon.
