Acumatica Summit Recap for Developers: Hackathon

Last year we hosted Acumatica’s first-ever hackathon at our Summit in San Diego – a smashing success on all accounts.  We are again excited to announce we will be hosting a greatly expanded edition at our next Summit in Nashville on  Saturday, January 27th – the first official event to kick-off.

As was the case last year, we expect a large number of partners participating – developers and non-developers alike – forming several teams, working together on delivering a number of real-world business solutions.  Each team will be assigned an Acumatica subject matter expert (SME) as a mentor/adviser.

To get an overview & recap of last years event, go here. To get a detailed read about one of the winning solutions, please go here.
