• Hackers Making a Difference

    Houston’s second annual Hackathon wrapped up on Sunday, June 1 at the Houston Technology Center.  In all, there were 18 projects ranging from a hardware device to reduce “hot car” fatalities to an app aimed at giving a face and voice to Houston’s homeless.  The big winner?  An app that turns your city into a cultural scavenger hunt.  The Boniuk Foundation awarded the $2,000 grand prize to CultureHunt, which made the best of their 24 hour coding sprint and impressed the judges with an innovative way to encourage people to learn about the many religious and cultural traditions in our city.
