Geekcon Pets is an invitation-only, 36 hours ‘project based’ hackaton : building creative technologies and solutions for pets, their owners, and other animals.
Our goal is to harness creative, multi disciplinary individuals to do projects that will cause joy, playfulness and help day to day life of animals and those who raise them.
We invite talented innovators, makers, developers, designers to come together with great new tech and have fun, Geekcon style, in creating a better life and care for pets and animals.
There are two ways to come to GeekCon: suggest a project of your own, or find a project you like and request to join. Anyway, let us know your skill set and we will do our best to connect you to a running project.
