Four student teams, comprised of a total of 10 to 12 individuals from the College of Computing and Informatics, will participate in a regional hackathon set for Saturday and Sunday, July 12 - 13, in the PORTAL building at UNC Charlotte.
The University is hosting one of several such events being held worldwide; the goal is to expose technology innovators and the financial services community to one another. Hackathon organizers are founders of "The Money Event" (TME) held during Super Mobility Week in Las Vegas Sept. 9 - 11. TME sessions focus on innovations in commerce, banking, payments and financial services in general.
According to hackathon organizers, their mission is to demonstrate the power of open platforms and mobile technologies in fostering innovations in financial services.
PlanCharlotte, with urban designers Keihly Moore and Alex Borisenko, invites the public to nominate places in the Charlotte region that can be improved with some urban design magic.
As part of the Complete Blocks project, Moore and Borisenko hope to inspire area residents to rethink how small spaces can be retrofitted for creative uses.
