$10,000 Hackathon May 11

Welcome hackers!  Get ready for another legendary MoDevHack! This event will be at the very cool Capital One Labs right across the street from the Clarendon Metro stop. There are two prevailing themes at this event; User Experience and Money. Special prizes will be awarded for those who come up great UX and other special prizes will be awarded for apps that deal with the way we use money. Of course, our sponsors will be providing their own prizes as well. Get psyched, we're going to pass out more than $10,000 in prizes in one day!

$25 entry fee. Yes, we added a small admission fee but 100% of this fee goes into the grand prize pool. We thought no better way to benefit the hackers who make it out. We hope that's cool.
