Next Gen Creators, a team of young Jamaican tech entrepreneurs who promote coding and entrepreneurship will stage their annual Coders of the Caribbean hackathon in Kingston, Jamaica next weekend, July 15-17th at the Startup Jamaica Hub.
For 36 hours, Caribbean millennials will bring their best ideas and work on them intensely in teams, having fun competing for prizes. “The beauty of technology is that it is limitless, all one needs is an idea and the know how, hat said the Tech sector is awash with opportunities and we want Jamaican youth to be able to cash in on those possibilities”, said Nicholas Kee, cofounder of Next Gen Creators.
Coders Of The Caribbean will give an opportunity for aspiring tech-entrepreneurs to dedicate a weekend to learning and creating. They will dedicate 36 hours to building a mobile, web or hardware application ; pitch to a panel of Judges ; and at the end of the day interact with visionaries, mentors and participate in the local tech community.
