The sixth annual SXSW Hackathon runs for 24 hours straight between March 12–13, bringing together developers, hackers, and coders along with the many creative industry professionals who gather in Austin each spring.
After the marathon coding session, top level entertainment and media industry judges will award cash prizes to the winning teams, who will also be invited to participate in a two-day Hackathon Incubator on March 14–15.
For 2019, participating hackers will address these questions with the prototypes that they build:
— Commerce & Industry
— Creation and Performance
