Event description
Welcome to our 4th annual Brother Hackathon! A free 2-day virtual hackathon to bring together the greatest innovators from the U.S.

About this Event

The BROTHER MOBILE APP HACKATHON (the “Contest”) is designed to encourage programmers to submit software apps that integrate with a Brother QL Label Printer, P-touch label maker, a PocketJet series printer, a RuggedJet series printer/labeler, a TD series printer/labeler, or a Full size printer/scanner (“Brother Device”). Each person or team will need to build an application that utilizes a Brother Device to print labels, receipts or full-page outputs (invoices, logs, contracts, etc.) as part of the application. Judged by key influencers within the industry, the Contest seeks to identify talented programmers from across the U.S. The prizes will be awarded to the best entries submitted. Winning submissions will be as determined by the Judges (defined below) in accordance with the Judging Criteria below and these Official Rules and are subject to verification.

Anyone with any idea that can challenge coders and graphics designers should sign up and present the idea. An iOS or Android coder can spend as little as 30 minutes to download the SDK and have the printer working within minutes. The graphics designer will design the output that the coder can print. The team will design a great user experience. Together you will try to complete the mobile app as much as possible using any one of the Brother's printers. There are lots of things you can do. You can validate your ideas, find talented people from Seattle Washington and vicinities, and enjoy a great event. The best part is that you can start now. But why wait? Grab a free ticket and if you come to one of our pre-events, we will match you with coders and designers. Please visit FAQ below for download SDK instruction, sample code tutorials (Objective-C, Swift, Android, Xamarin, Flutter) and reading the optional reference guide.

There are a total of 6 prizes provided by Brother: 1. Platinum Award ($5000), 2. Gold Award ($1000), 3. Silver Award ($500), 4. Vertical Awards (Brother VC500W: Retail, Healthcare, Education), 5. Mini-Hackathons (up to $200 will be announced in the workshops). All prizes are per team.

FREE! FREE! Each team will receive a free QL820NWB Mobile kit (includes a battery), or a QL1110NWB kit, or for your special projects, select a Brother RuggedJet or a PocketJet.
