Event Details

 Dev-ing. Mobile. Cloud. APIs. Good food. Awesome prizes. 

Interested in building your own app? This hackathon will introduce you the the latest cutting edge tools to deploy your own app with a website backend, fully hosted in the cloud. Alternatively, you can come pitch your idea and sco...ut for developer talent, who ...can help you build your app!

Mobile App Hackathon is an event produced by the AT&T Developer Program and Apigee that is designed for attendees (technical & non-technical) to learn about new technologies, build apps/mobile apps, get fed, compete for prizes across different categories and most importantly: meet new people and scout for teammates to work on new or current projects.

As far as platforms are concerned, feel free to code in the language you feel most comfortable, whether it's Objective C, Java, Javascript, HTML, C #, Dot Net, or XNA. We will also have live developer support from AT&T, Sencha, Apigee, and the Bottle Rocket Apps team to help you code that much faster.
