Bridging the worlds of software developers, artists and the City of Palo Alto, the inaugural Super Happy Block Party Hackathon takes place in downtown Palo Alto on March 31, 2012 from 1pm – 1am. Innovation Endeavors, Talenthouse and Institute for the Future will open their doors to the community in the spirit of innovation. The City of Palo Alto will block off High Street between University and Hamilton to enable people to meet on the street to collaborate and innovate.
Hackers and makers will have access to three hackspaces on the block. The street itself will be hackable through custom API’s with feeds planted in advance. Shield your screen from the Daystar inside the white yurt in the middle of the street. Relax to the beats of the Silent Disco. Be inspired by painters, musicians, and creatives of all kinds.
