Event Details

 

Silicon Valley-Shanghai Hackathon 2013:

Code for BlackBerry, Evernote, next generation smart devices (Google glasses, smart watches, leap motion etc.)

and more...

 

Join us at Silicon Valley-Shanghai Hackathon to interact with top coders, developers and designers from both US and China;  inspire your peers or get inspired from others. Just bring your laptops, form your teams or find your partners onsite, then enjoy the 36 hours’ coding game, and turn your idea to demo!

As usually, we provide decent places, drinks, snacks and meals.  We will also have some great judges/speakers. Winners will get chances to win cash awards, join Black Berry’s Global Developer Conference and Evernote's Global Trunk Conference.  And of course, you will meet a lot of Geeks and know more out of your home country in-terms of wisdom of geeks.   

We strongly recommend attendees make your demos following below three topics:

BlackBerry apps: Create apps for BlackBerry OS and customize them for BlackBerry’s loyal users. You can also make some creative updates on your current iOS/Android apps then transfer them onto BlackBerry OS.

Evernote Trunk:  Evernote is a platform for people's memories, facts, documents, clippings, data logs, and more. Building a great product on top of Evernote’s APIs and join Evernote ecosystem in the mission to make people smarter and world better.

Next generation smart devices: It isn’t building a device but creating some unique apps that could run on next generation hardwares like Google Glasses, Leap Motion, Pebble Watches as well as others. Big chance you’re heading on!
