Bots + Chatbots Hackathon

**FREE for students! Use code UNRCOMP**

Can journalism and communications schools help shape the next generation of media entrepreneurs? Many schools have created special “labs” and innovation centers and are running courses aimed at building startups — and a startup mentality. But how can they share knowledge, improve skills and have fun doing it? MediaShift is producing our fourth annual Journalism School Hackathon on the weekend of February 24-26, 2017, co-produced by the Reynolds School of Journalism and Center for Advanced Media Studies at the University of Nevada-Reno. We’re convening a group of top students (graduates and undergraduates), faculty and professionals for the weekend Hackathon, with a real-world mission of creating startups around bots and chatbots. Students will have a chance to collaborate on diverse teams of students with faculty and pro facilitators. 

No coding background is needed! The Hackathon is actually more like a Startup Weekend, with the creation of a startup name, business model and pitch deck. However, we will offer some video tutorials for those who want to learn to code chatbots.

Friday, February 24 to 12:00am
