Hackbright Academy Code of Conduct for Hackathons Adopted for Next Week's Retsly Real Estate Hackathon

Engineering school Hackbright Academy released a Code of Conduct from its successful women-centric hardware hackathon Silicon Chef free for use by other hackathon organizers to create more inclusive hackathons and events.

Upcoming real estate hackathon hosted by Retsly this Wednesday and Thursday, November 6 and 7 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco will be the first hackathon outside Hackbright Academy to operate with the Hackbright Academy Code of Conduct for Hackathons.

At the Retsly hackathon, software developers are invited to create new applications for residential real estate using current MLS listings and data in a secure environment. The hackathon is concurrent with the 2013 National Association of REALTORS® Conference & Expo at the Moscone Center - this means if you win, you’ll be able to pitch and possibly sell your product to the biggest decision makers in the business!

Participating data providers include:

Realogy (Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, Century 21, Coldwell Banker, ERA, Sotheby’s International Realty, and Coldwell Banker Commercial).
California Regional Multiple Listing Service
Midwest Real Estate Data

If you haven’t signed up already, make sure you get your free ticket here to join the hackathon as a developer, designer or biz dev person.

Thanks to Retsly for doing their part in creating an awesome inclusive hackathon - and for being the first hackathon to adopt and operate using the Hackbright Academy Code of Conduct for Hackathons!
