Event Details

Have an app idea or need an app built for your business?

Mobile App Hackathon is an event produced by the AT&T Developer Program  that is designed for attendees (technical & non-technical) to 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. Our hackathon will introduce you to the latest cutting edge tools to help deploy your own app with a website backend, fully hosted in the cloud.

We Supply: 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.

You Bring: Your laptop, skills & ideas. Come with a collaborative, team focused mindset and/or team up in advance on Twitter/Facebook/Google+ via the #atthack hashtag. Whether you are a backend person, designer, entrepreneur, student, or just interested in tech; you are invited to attend this event. Every group needs a good balance of talent and your development skills are needed!


Special Offer: Get familiar with the latest in Android smart wearable glasses before you head off to the competition or take your app to the next level with smart glass integration. AT&T together with Vuzix Corporation have put together a deal specifically for registered participants of the hackathons. For a limited time, purchase the Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses for $699.99 (normally $999.99) and the associated SDK for only $139.99 (normally $199.99), a savings of $360.00.
