Clayton Farms, formerly Nebullam, is hosting a hackathon Nov. 11-12 at its office and coworking space in Ames. A hackathon is an event where teams engage in collaborative engineering to develop functioning hardware or software in a short time span. Computer programmers and others involved with software development typically participate in hackathons, including graphic and interface designers and product and project managers. Participants in the Clayton Farms hackathon are not required to have coding experience and can register with a team or be paired with an existing team. The event will run from 3 to 9 p.m. on Friday and start again on Saturday at 9 a.m. Teams will pitch what they created starting at 5:30 p.m. Saturday. There are no options to participate remotely. The winners of each category will receive a minimum $500 award. More information and the registration form are available on the event page.
