Here is a write-up on the 2013 Flash Memory Summit Hackathon:  

Hackathon Organizer and Chair: Dr. KRS Murthy


Title:  Flash Memory Hackathon


Description:  The 2013 Flash Memory Summit is looking for a few technical volunteers to help man a hardware hackathon to be held for about 9 hours on Tuesday during the FMS.  Ideally these technical volunteers would be applications engineers who could provide technical resources (such as development kits, components, flash memory storage, power supplies, etc.) and advice that would be needed by 4-5 hackathon teams that would be composed of from 1 to 5 people each.  These technical volunteers and their supported institution or company would be given recognition for their support at the FMS.


The hackathon teams would design and build their idea during the 9 hours of the hackathon using the components at the hackathon.  They may come to the hackathon with some advance ideas and plans of what they would like to build, but they would need to construct the actual implementation using components available at the hackathon.  We probably need to have a list of available resources that we provide the hackathon participants before the event.


The hackathon will have the theme of using flash memory for humanitarian purposes.  We have a list of possible projects that have been brought up but we would need the technical volunteers to create suggested projects or parts of our list of suggested projects that could reasonably be designed, built and demonstrated within a 9 hour period.  We would also like to leave open the idea that hackathon teams might come up with their own ideas for projects that could be completed within the 9 hour hackathon time.


Hackathon teams will be judged at the end of the event for ingenuity, usefulness of the design for humanitarian purposes, and best working/exhibiting the most working features.
