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 and Apigee 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.

Objective C, Android, Java, ASM, Javascript, HTML, C #, Dot Net, XNA and all other languages are welcome. Your only objective is to get a mobile app running regardless of an HTML5, Mobile Web or native implementation. Even if you are rusty with your programming, we will have live developer support from local senior developers as well as from AT&T to help you code that much faster.
