This special AT&T Mobile App Hackathon, focused on NFC and gaming, is an event produced by the AT&T Developer Program and SEMA Development that is designed for attendees (technical & non-technical) to 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. Our hackathon will introduce you to the latest cutting edge tools to help deploy your own app with a website backend, fully hosted in the cloud.
This specific hackathon will feature speakers from the gaming industry as well as mentors that can help you with the game you have been thinking about building or advance the game you have already built.
To make this event even more interesting for you, Wild Tangent has graciously offered to FINISH the first place game, free of charge. You own the rights to the game and Wild Tangent / AT&T will help get the word out through our channels.
To take things to another level we are also partnering with SEMA Development to offer a special prize for top teams willing to donate the proceeds of their app to charity. Please be sure to check back as we provide more information.
We Supply: Quick presentations and code samples that help to bootstrap your hacking, food to keep you going, and caffeine to keep you awake. Along with technical senseis to assist you in building faster, smarter, and with new tools.
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 and code in Ruby/PHP/.NET or are a designer and only work with Illustrator, you are invited to attend this event. Every group needs a good balance of talent and your development skills are needed!
