The Hackcess to Justice hackathon took place in New Orleans, LA on March 21st and 22nd. Omega Ortega was lucky enough to be a part of this great event, along with the other teams, organizers, judges, and lawyers (many of the group are pictured above). Rarely does one walk away from an event realizing that life has changed and will never be the same, but this event did just that. Now, if you recall, we’ve won hackathons for other verticals like Retail, Healthcare, and Finance.

In September, our team traveled to Omaha, Nebraska to participate in a Hackathon (“app challenge”) sponsored by First National Bank (FNB). We had never been to Omaha, so we didn’t know what to expect. To say we were pleasantly surprised would be putting it mildly. We had a blast. We were able to hang out with […]
In the Novartis mHealth Challenge, we walked away with 2nd place. Not bad considering we were up against some competitors who had been working months and years on their products. Our idea was conceived, designed and built in roughly 48 hours…and still took 2nd! We were very proud of our Twogether app concept that our […]
