Seattle Muslim Hackathon 2015

Alhumdulillah, our 2nd Annual Seattle Muslim Hackathon event was a success. Jazak'Allah Khair to everyone for attending. In particular, we're very grateful to the Muslim Association of Puget Sound (MAPS). It was inspiring to see everyone come out and partake in what we hope becomes a core part of the community - using technology to connect our communities. We are also grateful to all of the volunteers who spent tireless hours on short notice to provide the best experience possible.

The Hackathon went very well. With over 9 teams participating, the spirit of innovation was alive, and it was remarkable to see the results produced in such a short period of time. The full entries included:
