Hack the Beltway

BlairHacks is a hackathon at Montgomery Blair High School that brings together students from across the county to celebrate building awesome technology. To kick off our existence we have partnered with Major League Hacking and their 12 hour Local Hack Day program.

Whether you're a hackathon veteran or have never been to a hackathon before, BlairHacks_0 is a great way to start this year's season.
