March 22nd - 24th
The Microsoft Bing Fund is creating a series of Hackathons around Autism, where we will invite technologists, designers, subject matter experts, and people living with Autism (both families and individuals) to participate and help us produce prototypes which we will continue to build on at subsequent Hackathons. Depending on the feedback from the first event we will likely modify the themes at each subsequent events to focus on specific areas. If you have any comments or questions about our Hackathon for Autism or you would like to volunteer please reach out to us here.
