A hackathon where people come together and the world's most absurd app ideas and product features come to life (or die trying).
"Build Something Dumb" is the perfect rendezvous for those with a knack for the peculiar, the absurd, and the downright daft. It's where you'll find your next partner in crime for that app idea that makes even a rubber chicken look serious.
Feel the camaraderie as you delve into the rabbit hole of ridiculousness with fellow jesters. Here, the motto is - if it doesn't make you chuckle, chortle or snort, you're not doing it right. It’s a celebration of the bizarre, an ode to the impractical.
Get insights on how to turn the mundane into the hilarious from jesters who’ve walked the tightrope between genius and insanity. Our experienced guides on this ludicrous journey have mastered the art of the facepalm and are here to share their nonsensical wisdom.
Create something that makes you laugh, makes you think, or defies any explanation. Remember, the goal here isn't to build the next big startup - it's to have fun, learn something new, and maybe, just maybe, build something so ridiculously dumb that it's actually kind of brilliant.
Build Something Dumb is a hackathon where people come together to build unconventional, the impractical, and the downright silly. We celebrate the most hilariously absurd ideas in the form of new apps, product features, and websites.
Anyone over the age of 18 with an interest in software and a sense of humor! Whether you're a developer, designer, tinkerer, or simply someone with a knack for coming up with bizarre ideas, you're welcome to join.
