Hackanooga 2012, Chattanooga's first-ever hackathon, was held on September 14 and 15 2012. Presented by U.S. Ignite and Mozilla, and sponsored by EPB, Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce, the National Science Foundation , CO.LAB, Lamp Post Group and Easy Designs, the 48-hour event connected experienced web developers to Chattanooga's unique one-gigabit-per-second Internet speed. Some 80 hackers hailed across the country and overseas to form teams and leverage the power of the Gig to prototype apps that require high bandwidth or use big data. Potential projects have been identified in areas such as education, clean energy, healthcare and public safety.
