During New York Fashion Week in February 2012 - and in the middle of the year's biggest snowstorm - Hearst Magazines teamed with AngelHack, organizer of the world's largest hackathon competition, for its 1st Fashion Hackathon. 150+ programmers, designers, and entrepreneurs worked for 24 hours, using Hearst APIs including Cosmopolitan, Harper's Bazaar, ELLE and Marie Claire, to come up with new products that married fashion and emerging technology. The winners, who were strangers to each other and to the industry before the hackathon, walked away with $10,000. At this panel you will learn why companies like Hasbro, McDonalds, and Popular Mechanics are recognizing the value, competitive advantages, and strategic business opportunities that can arise from these 24 hour coding competitions known as hackathons. The session will be led by Hearst CTO Phil Wiser and AngelHack CEO, Sabeen Ali.
