Axeda M2M Hackathon
Sponsored by AT&T

Join us for an exciting 24-hour M2M Hackathon competition sponsored by AT&T.  This hackathon is designed for both technical and non-technical attendees to build apps, connect products, and compete for $10k in prizes. Bring your team if you have one. If you don't have a team, no worries, you can find a team to collaborate with on site.

Registration is free in advance, $10 on site.  Competition spots are limited so sign up today!

 

Take one step closer to becoming an award-winning hacker – the $10k in prizes will be awarded by a judges panel that includes angel investors, tier-1 media outlets, Axeda and AT&T executives.

 

Take on the M2M challenge: code and deploy a business app. We'll bring the Axeda Machine Cloud platform and the AT&T wireless network, you bring your ideas and laptop.

For inspiration: Check out the video of the AT&T Hackathon 2013 in Las Vegas, winning project Good Times powered by Axeda:
