AT&T IoT and Civic Hackathon
This very special, Mobile App Hackathon, an event produced by the AT&T Developer Program, is designed for attendees interested in coding mobile apps or hacking hardware solutions to help better their community.
AT&T and other top technology sponsors will be challenging participants to build Smart City applications using local government data, APIs and any hardware of their choosing. Experts will be onsite to assist with your build and answer any questions.
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 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 senseis to assist you in building faster, smarter, and with new tools.
