Have a great app idea you'd like to hack using Worklight?

Come join us at this extremely special mobile and machine to machine (M2M) focused AT&T Mobile App Hackathon, an event produced by the AT&T Developer Program. We are inviting all developers and designers, whether expert or novice, to one event where you can sharpen your skills around mobile and M2M technologies with Worklight and MQTT. We will provide everything you need to rapidly build next generation mobile/M2M applications while you learn at the Impact conference. This supercharged event begins Monday night with technical talks featuring IBM Worklight and M2M experts and a combination of remote and development office hours to provide you support throughout the week.

Attendees of this event will get a sneak peek at leading edge concepts around the convergence of mobile and M2M that will be covered throughout the conference and the ability to test out and hack each concept as they learn about them. Take advantage of this opportunity to build innovative mashups using AT&T APIs and M2M events, whether for social good or to give your business that competitive advantage, around anything connected you can think of. Some examples of connected apps include connected cars, clinical remote monitoring, home and building security, pay-as-you-drive car insurance, smart meters, traffic management, building automation, and the list goes on and on.

So bring your creativity and and walk away with great prizes for either yourself or a charity that you are passionate about!
