API Hackday ATX
Saturday, September 10, 2011 from 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM (CDT)
Calling all hackers,
developers, code monkeys, and data junkies!
To cap off the very first Austin Startup Week, we are bringing you API Hackday ATX. We'll gather in the offices of Conjunctured in hip East Austin for an all-day coding fest focused on building apps with APIs. Developers of all experience levels can share ideas, collaborate on existing projects, start new ventures, and find out about new APIs to play with.
