Code:Buffalo – Hackathon @ Home

43North is launching its next Code:Buffalo Hackathon, a virtual hackathon where people can participate from home – hence the current version being referred to as Code:Buffalo Hackathon @ Home.

This time around 43North will donate a meal to WNY Feeds the Frontline for every person that participates in the virtual hackathon. For additional inspiration, there are $15,000 in prizes, which will be doled out to tech workers that “build something to help the Buffalo community.”


The way that it works is simple:

  • Create a Code:Buffalo team of 1 to 5 members
  • Build an amazing app or product
  • Compete to win a top prize of $10,000
  • Sign up at

Code:Buffalo – Hackathon @ Home will take place April 17th through April 24th. Teams are welcome to sign up for mini challenges, or help a team of mentors that is in place to help others reach the starting gate, and hopefully the finish line.
