AT&T IoT Hackathon - Bay Area
Fri, Sep 23, 2016, 6:00 PM – Sat, Sep 24, 2016, 9:00 PM PDT
Have an app idea or need an app built for your business?
Join us in the Bay Area for an IoT and Mobile App Hackathon, produced by the AT&T Developer Program. Hangout with us as we hack, get fed, compete for prizes across different categories and most importantly: meet new people and scout for teammates to work on new or current projects. We will have experts from AT&T and the local community onsite to assist with your development.
Your laptop, skills & ideas. Come with a collaborative, team-focused mindset and/or team-up in advance on Twitter/Facebook/Google+ via the #atthack hashtag. Whether you are a backend person, designer, entrepreneur, student, or just interested in tech, you are invited to attend this event. Every group needs a good balance of talent and your development skills are needed!
Quick presentations and code samples that help to bootstrap your hacking, food to keep you going, and caffeine to keep you awake. We will have technical mentors to assist you in building faster, smarter, and with new tools. We will also have loaner hardware on-site for you to use in your solutions.
