API Hackathon: Learn. Code. Demo.
Sunday, April 1, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 9:30 PM (BST)
London, United Kingdom
Join other developers, entrepreneurs and designers for April Fool's Sunday hackathon to bring your next best app idea to life in a day. Create or join a team or code solo. API teams will be there for technical guidance, brainstorming and feedback. Learn something new, network and win prizes. Free food and beverages will be served.
UPDATE: Apigee recently launched the private beta of Usergrid and we'll be demonstrating it at the hackathon. Usergrid is an open source cloud platform for mobile applications, providing user management and social graphs, database services, activity streams, and analytics. We'll be letting anyone who has signed up for the hackathon into the private beta and we'll be on-site at the hackathon to answer any questions or help you integrate Usergrid with your app.

We'll have some short technical lightning talks in the morning so you can learn about some new APIs and ask questions from the people that build them. If you have an app idea and need a team member, or don't have a team yet but want to join one, we'll have an idea pitch session too. Then go code - any language or platform you want, just use APIs and build something awesome. At the end of the day demo what you built and even win some prizes.
