Chronicle Hackathon is an online hackathon designed to bring together tech enthusiasts from across the Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) region in a competitive yet inclusive environment. Teams will be tasked to creatively design and develop a prototype of their favourite consumer technology. The consumer technology must address itself as a solution for a particular problem or scenario, and can be anything such as a video game, digital assistant, interactive platform, educational application, computational software, and much more.
