Congratulations to the winner of the 2015 SXSW Music Hackathon Championship: Dan Noskin a.k.a. Dandelion. Click here to read the full event recap, and check back later this year for more information about the 2016 event.
Using their programming know-how and our collection of music-tech APIs, teams will have 24 hours to work on their prototypes and compete for the $10,000 Grand Prize, awarded by our panel of celebrity judges. Joining the hackers as Hackathon Artists-in-Residence are the fabulous Robert DeLong and Neon Hitch. The 2015 Hackathon judges include Alex Ebert (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros), Ty Roberts (Co-Founder of Gracenote), and Alex White (CEO of Next Big Sound), with more to come. Last year's $10,000 Grand Prize went to MOOT, who beat out a crowd of 30 teams and over 100 developers. It's anyone's game for 2015, and could be you!
