What is EasilyDo? 

Unlike traditional productivity and social apps, EasilyDo is a smart, all-in-one assistant app that makes you more productive AND more connected. No to-do lists, no digging, no switching back and forth between apps. EasilyDo finds important everyday tasks and communications from your calendar, email, Facebook, etc. — and offers to take care of them for you right on the spot with one tap of the ‘Do It’ button. It’s that simple, and it’s free!

You are warmly invited to our "Dream it. Hack it. Do it! Hackathon" and contribute your ideas to our awesome repertoire of automated tasks called ‘Do Its.’ The hackathon entry should follow this paradigm:

When event happens, offer to do action.


Examples:

  • "When I am not at home, offer to show me map directions to go home."
  • "When I receive an event invitation on Facebook, offer to add it to my Google Calendar."

The sky's the limit. Get your creative juices flowing and hack the coolest Do It the world has ever seen!

What do I need to bring along with me?
A laptop computer, charger and an iOS device with Easilydo installed. EasilyDo is available for download
here. We will provide the rest.

Are teams allowed?
Yes, you may work in teams of up to 3 members.

What programming languages do I have to use for the hackathon?
Any language as long as your code can POST to our API endpoints and also be executed on a remote server. That being said, scripting languages are definitely encouraged. We will provide sample code and documentation for Python, PHP, and Java.
