GlobalHack VI is all about solving a software problem and bringing attention to St. Louis’ tech scene.
This software competition is focused on helping the St. Patrick Center, a local non-profit that serves the homeless.
The $1 million in cash prizes is helping attract software engineers, graphic designers and other technologists from a wide area. GlobalHack executive director Matt Menietti said earlier this week that 1,200 people had signed up from 33 states and five countries.
He said he hopes they’ll get to know St. Louis a bit more.
