Recap – 4th Annual Tech Conference & Hackthon – Irving, Texas

Alhumdulillah, our 4th Annual Tech Conference & Hackathon event have been a great success. Jazak’Allah Khair to everyone for attending the event. In particular, we’re very grateful to the EPIC Board. 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, and to help us engage our Masjids in the future. We are also grateful to all of the volunteers who spent tireless hours to provide the best experience possible.

We had over 125+ attendees for Hackathon & Tech Talks – which ranged from an overview on Learn Startups, Blockchain, Artificial intelligence (AI) & Machine Learning and 3D Printing. We also had tremendous participation in the workshop (HTML5, CSS3, UI/UX, AngularJS, Game App). We’re especially grateful to all of the speakers who took time out of their valuable weekends. 

The Hackathon went very well and it was remarkable to see the results produced in such a short period of time.
