TechCrunch kicked-off their sixth annual TechCrunch Disrupt SF at Pier 70 in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood on Friday, September 21. It is their biggest event so far with nearly 300 exhibitors in Startup Alley.

Additionally, to the live discussion section of the event, TechCrunch also hosted a special Hackathon on September 19-20.

The event continues through the 23 of this month with coverage via the TechCrunch’s main website. Scan over the schedule of events and pick up tickets to experience the conversation live in San Francisco. Guests can dive deep into the startup community in San Francisco, tour virtual reality and much more at this annual event.

TechCrunch Disrupt SF hosted a Hackathon last weekend. This event featured an exciting and exhausting collaborative meeting where hundreds of coders and developers come together to form teams which have just shy of 24 hours to build something amazing from the ground up.
