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.
- "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!
1st Place - $3000 cash

Participants may work by themselves or in a team of up to three.
You can use APIs, open source libraries and any hardware you like. However, there should not be any production code written before the official start of the hackathon.
The development tools, frameworks and application focus are entirely up to the participants but they must be able to integrate into Easilydo's server (POST data and accept POST data)
Each entry will be given 2 minutes to present their finished product. After the 2 minutes are up, you will be asked to stop the demo and the judges may ask you questions.
Judges will base their decisions on:
Time Saved: How much time does it save the end user?
Innovation: How innovative is the idea?
Delight Factor: How delightful does the user feel after having the task done?
How much do I have to pay to participate?
Nothing! This competition is absolutely FREE.
Who can participate?
We welcome coders and non-coders who have an interest in automating people’s lives to participate. You must be physically present at the venue of the hackathon to compete.
Do I need to have used EasilyDo before?
No, though it would help greatly if you have experienced how EasilyDo works and are familiar with the kinds of tasks it automates today.
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.
For all other questions, please email email@example.com.
