The What: AEC Hackathon 5.0 San Francisco Bay Area goes to Oakland, California this year. The AEC (Architecture, Engineering, Construction) Hackathon was created to give those designing, building, and maintaining our built environment the opportunity to collaborate with cutting edge technologies as well as with its developers and designers. The first AEC Hackathon took place in Silicon Valley in 2013 and it has quickly become a community of innovators that include all elements of the built environment, not just AEC. Each hackathon is brought to a location by the local AEC and or tech community. The AEC Hackathon community helps these locals make the event happen with financial support provided by both local and community sponsors. This has become THE event for creating innovation for these industries so get engaged today! Our world faces fresh new problems that urgently need brilliant minds to solve them and this is the community that is improving how our world is designed, built, and operated.
