Over the past weekend, Xilinx held a Showcase and PYNQ Hackathon in its Summit Retreat Center in Longmont, Colorado. About 100 people from tech companies all over Colorado attended the Showcase and twelve teams—about 40 people including students from local universities and engineers from industry—competed in the Hackathon.
