The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

HackOut is the nation’s premiere LGBT-oriented hackathon presented by StartOut. We are looking for individuals or teams that want to change the way we think by hacking a new demo in an exciting, 24-hour, overnight competition. It’s a great way to meet new friends, other entrepreneurs, investors and incubators. Developers, programmers, coders and geeks of all kinds will have access to incredible mentors from leading companies. StartOut is deeply grateful to its HackOut 2015 sponsors, which include Atlassian, Google, Hirestarter, Jones-Spross, Stripe, and WP Engine. Rackspace is also donating more than $24,000 in cloud computing services to the winning teams. Google Cloud Starter Pack credits will be available to all participants. Hackathons are excellent ways to merge entrepreneurial spirit with computer programming prowess and product design sensibilities. Students, hackers, programmers, product marketers, and other web enthusiasts can form small teams to create new ventures during the hackathon. Individuals with all levels of experience are welcome to participate, and any viable business idea can form the basis for participants’ projects.
