WordPress Hackathon

WordCamp Albuquerque 2013 is hosting our 2nd annual WordCamp Hackathon. True to our programs’ missions we are looking for local creative organizations that contribute to the Albuquerque community. This could be a business, artist, musician, start-up or any type of business that benefits Albuquerque. We will select one organization and enlist a team of WordPress content producers, designers, and developers to create a website in approximately 4 hours.


The New Mexico community is invited to submit projects for consideration. The WordCamp Hackathon Committee will choose one dynamic organization that we believe expresses the creative, entrepreneurial, or progressive spirit of Albuquerque. These three projects will have a team of experienced WordPress experts translating their vision into a fully functional WordPress site in a 4 hour time period.
