Event Details

What is Mashape?

Mashape is a Cloud API Hub where you can distribute, consume, and monetize private and public APIs. We are an API Marketplace with over 2000+ APIs in catalog including sentiment analysis APIs, face recognition, and more. You can sign-up to Mashape here -http://www.mashape.com/signup.

When and Where?
We are hosting a 24-hour API Hackathon this coming April 6-7 in our Mashape Hacker House at 433 Bryant St., San Francisco. You can check out the venue herehttp://www.facebook.com/mashape .

What's the Hackathon about?
We'd like to see you build web or mobile applications from any "Machine Learning" APIs out there. Examples of these APIs include text processing, sentiment analysis, face recognition... like the ingredients you need to "humanize" a robot :P

We will serve lunch and dinner on Day 1.  You will be required to be onsite at the start of the hackathon.  You can continue coding at home and come back the next day for the demo.

The Prizes
The winner gets to choose between a Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0 or a Sphero ball!  Oh and Yactraq is giving away $500 to the best app that uses the Yactraq API :) (Soon to be up in Mashape).
