Supplier News

The company is sponsored "Hacking Asbury," a hackathon-style mini conference for developers, designers, artists, business owners and others.

| June 20, 2013

WALL, N.J. — Marathon Data Systems recently sponsored the "Hacking Asbury" event that took place at the CoWerks facility in Asbury Park on June 22. The Hackathon-style mini conference invited all developers, designers, artists, business owners and other interested parties to come with projects to work on and ideas to share. In addition, the event featured speakers from a variety of fields and the opportunity for attendees to meet with mentors. The mini conference, which ended with a summer BBQ, is a community event that welcomes all.

As a provider of web-based software solutions in Monmouth County, Marathon Data Systems was excited to sponsor an event that brought together and supports the local tech community. Marathon also teamed up with CoWerks earlier this year for their Jersey Shore Comeback-A-thon Hackathon which took place at the venue in April. The Hackathon brought developers together to brainstorm applications that could be created to assist in the rebuilding of the Jersey Shore in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. 

Marathon Data CEO, Chris Sullens describes why involvement in the local tech community is important, "As a rapidly growing software company on the Jersey Shore, we are constantly looking for talent. We have to get creative to let talented developers know that they don't have to go to the city for opportunities to use leading edge technologies to create great products. Partnering with organizations like CoWerks and people like Bret Morgan, who share our desire to get the word out about what great place the Jersey Shore is to build and grow a tech business, makes sense. We look forward to growing and broadening the relationship over time."
