Tel Aviv Hackathon and SDL Conference
“If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.” - Henry Ford

Innovators are the driving force behind the global evolution towards autonomous vehicles. What we are accomplishing today, combined with the pioneering spirit of the FordDev community, will ultimately provide the services and content of the connected vehicles on every highway. Join the Make It Driveable Challenge and innovate beside fellow developers and the FordDev team. Compete for a share of cash and prizes, and lick the snozzberries…they taste just like snozzberries!

“We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams.” - Willy Wonka
