About this event
The Really Really High Tech Hackathon
The increasing legalization of the cannabis industry has already ignited a revolution across all facets of the budding industry, but roadblocks and growing pains remain. From cash-only donations, to strain and benefit management, down to how the patient acquires their medication, there is ample room for innovative solutions.
Who should attend? Anyone who is interested in cannabis and technology, preferably combined 😉. We welcome developers, designers and entrepreneurs of all levels and skill-sets to hack. All are welcome, as long as you're passionate and willing to have some fun innovating!
