AppConsult @ BUILD


Our AppConsult team was fortunate to host an area at BUILD again this year. In total we assisted 173 customers. We were partnered with folks from the Centennial and UX Teams.

In addition our team assisted at the 24hr Hackathon which started after BUILD on Friday at 6pm and ended at 6pm Saturday evening.  You can see the awesome apps devs built at that hackathon -
