Join Facebook and Heroku for a live, in-person, two-day Hackathon focused on helping developers build and deploy social web apps, August 18th & 19th at the Heroku office in San Francisco!
A Social Hackathon
We’ll be doing more than creating social apps. On Saturday evening, teams will have the opportunity to demo their products to the whole crowd for feedback. Get real time, actionable input on what you’ve been working on and provide feedback to others. You’ll have time on Sunday to improve, fix and clean up your app before the judging round.
Not sure what to build? No problem. We’ll have some suggestions for apps we’d like to see.
Need a break from hacking? We’ll have video games, pool, ping pong, and a zen room available.
Hack to Win
Judges from Facebook and Heroku will each choose winning teams to be awarded with an assortment of prizes to help launch your app.
In addition, there will be one “people’s choice” winner judged by attendees who walks away with fame, notoriety, and bragging rights.
We can’t wait to see what you build!
