Develop an AT&T API available for BlackBerry 10
With over $100k in prizes, this AT&T Hackathon is designed for both technical and non-technical attendees to build mobile apps, get some great food, and compete for prizes across different categories.
Most importantly: you will meet new people and be able to scout for teammates to work on current or new projects.
There will be some awesome swag for attendees including, Neurosky Necomimi Brainwave Cat Ears, which will be given to 100 lucky hackathon attendees!
This year they’ve lengthened the amount of time that you have to two (2) days (Saturday and Sunday) so that AT&T can introduce their new and improved AT&T APIs that they’d like to challenge you to hack away on, as well as a slew of drool-inducing prizes.
Quick presentations and code samples that help to bootstrap your hacking, food to keep you going, and caffeine to keep you awake. Along with technical senseis to assist you in building faster, smarter, and with new tools.
Your laptop, skills & ideas. Come with a collaborative, team focused mindset and/or team up in advance on Twitter/Facebook/Google+ via #atthack. Whether you are a backend person and code in Ruby/PHP/.NET or are a designer and only work with Illustrator, you are invited to attend this event. Every group needs a good balance of talent and your development skills are needed!
