WE ARE GOING ONLINE

We’re excited to announce that  {muslimHackathon} 2020 has transitioned to an online event. We hope that this will give everyone the chance to participate in an even bigger and better event without having to leave the comfort of their homes. As we all navigate the uncertainty of the COVID-19 outbreak together, what better way to pass the time than to work together on solutions to benefit Ummah.

WHAT IS MUSLIM HACKATHON?

Sunday Nov 29, 2020 (11AM – 3PM CST)

The Lean Startup

A core component of Lean Startup methodology is the build-measure-learn feedback loop. The first step is figuring out the problem that needs to be solved and then developing a minimum viable product (MVP) to begin the process of learning as quickly as possible.

Privacy Unchained

Are you in control of your own data? Why should you be concerned? What can you do today? Let’s discuss the power of data, influence and how to stay safe.

The Future of Digital Currencies & Crypto

The future of money might be a digital version of the cash that’s already in people’s wallets—potentially upending the currency system that the world has known for many decades.

AI Trends to Watch in 2021

Before the global pandemic struck in 2020 and the world was turned on its head, artificial intelligence (AI), and specifically the branch of AI known as machine learning (ML), were already causing widespread disruption in almost every industry.

Future Trends in Cloud Computing

The main reason that the future of cloud computing will be as powerful and expansive as it portends to be is that cloud technology is extremely beneficial.

Technology and EV stocks: How to pick the winner stocks

Electric vehicle companies have been the darlings of Wall Street in 2020. There’s good reason for the enthusiasm. The world seemingly is moving rapidly toward a tipping point where new, cleaner drivetrains have matured enough to replace fuel-guzzling engines. The automotive industry is entering a period of massive disruption, creating ample opportunities for new companies to displace incumbents.
