TABConf Hackathon in Atlanta
September 6 @ 9:00 am - September 9 @ 1:00 pm
### What is this project about? Please give us as many details as possible.
The purpose of the Hackathon is to promote innovation in the fields of Bitcoin, Lightning Network, Nostr, and AI. Our goal is to facilitate an environment that encourages collaboration, education, and the creation of new and exciting projects. We aim to grow the Lightning Network and Nostr communities by providing a platform for developers to showcase their skills and share their work. Above all, we want to have fun and celebrate bleeding-edge technology!
### Is it a FOSS or Open Source project?
Open Source, we want to work with the community on this to get their feedback and incorporate it.
### What would an attendee learn from visiting this projects table at Builder Days?
How to build Lightning Apps and then building a brand new project!
### Is there anything people should read up on before finding the table at Builder Day?
Yes, we can hook up folks with lots of course content to prepare them from nocode to writing a LN script to a full blown Lightning or Nostr App. It all just depends on how much time you want to put into it and what you want to do as well as how much experience you have.
