Event Details

App.net Hackathon


Two days of developers collaborating (and, um, competing) to build the most imaginative, inspired, and innovative App.net apps. We'll provide the food, snacks, and ground rules, and you provide the ideas. Oh the possibilities.  


Saturday, October 20: 10 am – 10 pm (note we are not hacking through the night)

Sunday, October 21: 10 am – 4 pm


The day will start with an intro and overview from our ceo, Dalton Caldwell, and there will be a breakout session for those new to our API or who have questions on getting started. Ther afternoon on Sunday will be used to demo and showcase all projects.


App.net is an ad-free, subscirption based social network and API. For developers, we're a backbone you can rely on – the pipes you can build your web, mobile, and desktop apps on. Our API is here for you, and we won't shut you out.
