DePaul faculty, staff and students are invited to test their innovation and app-building skills at the 2015 INTXHACK Challenge. Held in conjunction with INTX: The Internet and Television Expo, the INTXHACK Challenge is a 24-hour hackathon that challenges developers to create apps from scratch using the latest tools, data and content for a chance to win up to $10,000.
