Countdown to SXSW Eco: Let's Start it Early!

Written by Julie Yost | Wednesday, Oct 2, 2013

Little Herds SXSW Eco officially begins on Monday, October 7, but the pre-conference activities begin this weekend!

Hackers, coders, designers and data buffs: there is still time to sign up for the SXSW Eco Hackathon presented by Verizon Foundation. The Hackathon takes place from 10am – 10pm on Sunday, October 6, but join us Saturday, October 5 for a Meet Up at Pike Powers Lab. Meet your fellow hackers and learn about the exclusive data Pike Powers is providing that has the potential to transform residential energy usage.

On Sunday, October 6, the Hackathon will take place all day at the Palm Door. Registration for all SXSW Eco attendees opens at 6pm at the Austin Convention Center. Grab your badge and head to Brush Square Park (directly north of the Austin Convention Center) for the SXSW Eco Pre Party. Mingle with fellow attendees and partake in complimentary beverages from Lagunitas and edible insects (!) provided by our friends at Little Herds. We will see you this weekend to celebrate the beginnings of the best SXSW Eco yet!
