The San Francisco chapter of the International Space Apps Challenge will take place in the heart of the city's Financial District, just a few blocks from the Transamerica Pyramid, Union Square and other San Francisco landmarks.
For the second year in a row, we're hacking from the SF quarters of Constant Contact, an email and social media marketing company that has generously provided space and resources to keep the Space Apps hackers housed and fed.
Check out last year's event, including photos: http://spaceappssf.weebly.com/
