Accessithon 2016

September 30 - October 2, 2016

ORION proudly supports this event


The accessibility hackathon is a collaboration between Conestoga College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning and Open Sky Incubator that aims to bring people and technology together in the creation of human–computer interaction solutions that enhance and improve the quality of life for people.

Participants will envision their ideas, and work in an inspirational and collaborative environment to create solutions that will improve lives. Participants will be encouraged to interact with event sponsors, judges, and volunteers in order to expand their professional network and discover new academic and career opportunities. The projects may be in the form of mobile, Web, desktop, or hardware applications. The possibilities are endless!

The hackathon is primarily geared toward computer application developers and designers, however we welcome everyone, including general technology enthusiasts. Participants will have the option to work as part of a team or individually. The maximum team size is five. Although you are most welcome to work independently, we encourage all to form or join a team! Those that do not have a team but would like to join one will have an opportunity to do so, and will be provided with assistance from event volunteers.
