Are you ready for Battlehack Raleigh?

Battlehack is a global event, recently held in locations such as Singapore, Los Angeles, and Melbourne. Raleigh has been chosen as one of the sixteen global cities to host Battlehack. The winner from Battlehack Raleigh will receive a fully funded trip to the Battlehack World Finals in California on November 14th-15th for a shot at $100,000, and a chance to claim the title of "The Ultimate Hacker for Good"! In other words, this is an event that you don't want to miss!

BattleHacks are full of 24+ hours of awesome stuff. In general, on Day 1 registration opens, you arrive, scope and share skills, create teams, meet judges, and then the gong hits and hacking begins. Add gourmet food, food and more food. Hack through the night, or grab a nap, beer break, and maybe even a massage or two. On Day 2, we have rehearsals, more food, and hack till you hear the gong, signaling the end of hacking! Teams present their apps, judging occurs and prizes are awarded. Citrix & Heroku have also provided a variety of prizes for the competition! 

To get things kicked off for Battlehack Raleigh we will have a HQ Member-Only Lunch & Learn on Tuesday, April 14th, 2015 from 12:00-1:00pm! But don't worry, we have an event for the public too! On April 13th we will be having a Happy Hour for Battlehack from 6:00-7:00pm! There will be a keg, delicious food, and drinks!

Tickets for the event are FREE! But they are also going quickly! So don't wait until the last moment to get your tickets! Visit to get your ticket today and learn more about the event! Battlehack is seeking people of all skills! Marketers! Developers! Designers! Pitchers! Even mobile developers!
