Esri-based hack wins TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon

HackathonTechCrunch held their New York Disrupt conference this past week, and as always, it kicked off with a hackathon over the weekend. Teams competed for the $5,000 Grand Prize, and we put up a $2,500 prize for best use of Esri technology.

A number of the teams used Esri APIs and services in some way, but it was Vrban, who built a Virtual Reality urban planning tool using Esri CityEngine, ArcGIS Online, the JavaScript API and an Occulus Rift that really stood out for us and took home our cash prize.

We were also thrilled that Vrban won the overall Grand Prize from TechCrunch! Huge congratulations from us all to Angel Say who single-handedly pulled it all together to fend off some solid competition.
