Present the HTML5DevConf HACKATHON
Isn’t it time you finally built or ported that app? Isn’t it time to leverage all you’ve learned at the HTML5 Dev Conference and put it into practice. Take a day for your work or yourself and come hack with us. Intel and HTML5DevConf have teamed up to offer a chance at cash prizes. Build an app from scratch or bring one you’ve been working on or wish to port. Intel will be providing some guidance on how to build an app in general and also how to port it to the Tizen Store.
Tizen - Here is some incentive to port your app during the Hack
The Tizen App Challenge is a global competition, sponsored by Intel, with over $4 million in prizes available.
