Concerned about wildfires? Join NSIN for our second hackathon of the year, Beat the Blaze, kicking off at the end of March. This hackathon will focus on coordinating responses to wildfires to enable the National Guard and first responders to work together more effectively. This hackathon will launch on March 29th and conclude on April 16thCome compete for $15,000 from NSIN and $5,000 in Azure credits from Microsoft to develop your solution. This is not a traditional cybersecurity hackathon, it’s closer to a design sprint or startup weekend. You don’t have to be able to code or be an engineer to participate; we encourage anyone who is creative to attend and join a team. The hackathon is open to all UW students, faculty and alumni, as well as entrepreneurs and startups. Register at
