Mark Cuban to Judge at Hack DFW Event this Spring

Hack DFW is Dallas’ first ever major student hackathon, and will be hosted at The Women’s Museum at Fair Park over the weekend of February 28-March 1.

Yesterday, Hack DFW announced that Dallas entrepreneur and tech enthusiast, Mark Cuban, will be judging at the event. Hosted by students at UTD, SMU, and UNT, Hack DFW brings all of the Dallas area schools together in one exciting 24-hour event.

Adil Shaikh, a UTD student who’s been heavily involved with planning Hack DFW, was beyond excited to make the announcement. “I’m super excited. Like dance-around-my-room excited. We have some awesome stuff lined up for our HackDFW hackers next month!”

All students are welcome at Hack DFW, including high schoolers, undergraduate students, and graduate students. The event is FREE, and includes WiFi, food, drinks, and miscellaneous swag for the entire hackathon.

Further information is available on the Hack DFW website, and you can follow along with them on Facebook and Twitter.
