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. This 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: Onsite, we will provide devices from SensorCon, Wahoo, Plantronics, and Neurosky that you can string together for a more integrated view into your world. You can also build wearables from scratch with Arduino boards, Arduino Lilypad boards, or ARM/Freescale mbed boards, then push your data into AT&T's M2X time-series data storage service for the Internet of Things. Invite your robot crazy friends, maker friends and DIY enthusiasts out to a weekend of making your world. Technical senseis will also be on site 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 and code in Ruby/PHP/.NET or are a designer and only work with Illustrator, you are invited to attend this event. Every group needs a good balance of talent and your development skills are needed!
