About Can’t Stop Columbus
On Sunday, March 15, 2020, the Columbus, Ohio tech and business community started talking about the idea of a virtual hackathon in response to the COVID-19 crisis. With social distancing, no school, remote work, and a sense of urgency, there is a lot of energy focused on helping. We proposed an online hacking event where anyone can contribute be defining challenges, building projects, and sharing resources.
…It’s kinda grown from there.
