The sheer number of participants and events at Treefort Music Fest's Hackfort is enough to overload a person's hard drive, with panels, workshops and TED-style talks that "explore the intersection of technology with education, civic life and the arts." Taking place mostly at the Owyhee and Trailhead, featured speakers have traveled from all over the country to talk about prototypes, virtual reality, music, startups, software development, tech reporting, gaming, filmmaking and mobile platforms. Hackfort also includes a four-day Hackathon wherein teams are challenged to create an app to make roads safer for cyclists, promote public transportation and improve ridesharing. Winners receive free legal consulting from Perkins Coie and four tickets to Treefort 2017.
