Event Details

Have an app idea or need an app built for your business?

This special IoT focused Mobile App Hackathon, an event produced by the AT&T Developer Program, is designed for attendees interested in hacking production or protyping hardware. So join us as we hack hardware, build apps/mobile apps, 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, IBM, Harman and the local community onsite to assist with your development.

You Bring: 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!

We Supply: 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 senseis to assist you in building faster, smarter, and with new tools. And no IoT event would be complete without Loaner Hardware:
