innovateAFITC Hackathon

Held in conjunction with AFITC, innovateAFITC is a hackathon event where members of government, industry, and academia collaborate and network together to discuss the national problems we face today.  This competition enables students, CyberPatriots, IT professionals and airmen from related career backgrounds in network communications, cybersecurity, software development, design, and STEM to quickly collaborate, form bonds of Wingmanship, and share skills and experience. By tapping into the talent across functional and organizational lines, the USAF can leverage innovation in the community it serves to identify ideas and recruit talent for the enterprise. This event aims to foster military organization comradery with industry partners and the educational community.
