Event Details

Video Hackday SF is an all-day hackathon dedicated to showcasing innovation and creativity in the world of video. 

Video Hackers

You know the drill. These tickets are good for the entire event, so come prepared to build something awesome and share it with the rest of the crowd. Please don't register as a hacker if you aren't going to build something.

Videographers & Designers

Feeling left out and still love video? If you're a creative type (and serious about it), grab one of these tickets and join up with a team of hackers to produce a 60-second video about their hack to air before the demo.

Demo Attendees

These tickets are for demo watching + Free Beer on Saturday early evening and don't require you to build or create video over the weekend.

Brought to you by Mashery, YouTube, OpenTok, Rotten Tomatoes, Netflix, Rovi Cloud Services, Zencoder &

Space for this event is limited so come on time if you want to get in the door! We want to make sure we have a good mix of people who are there to build and contribute to the day!

We'll send out a confirmation email as the date approaches and will accommodate as many hackers as we can.
