Calling all the APAC Hackers!

Into the wild! This weekend we would love to see you build awesome hacks for animals. Whether it's the 3D tour of the Amazon rainforest or an e-commerce application for your pets. It's time to bring your wild hacky ideas to life for this jungle-themed hackathon.
We'll mark this celebration with hacking, workshops, mini-events, live streams, and more! While we'd love to have you build something on the theme, our themes are only here for inspiration. As always, build whatever you'd like!

If you're from the NA/EU region, we'd love for you to join another one of our amazing hackathons which are more time-friendly for your region: Hack With A Crew

Happy hacking!
