TAPPED: Android NFC Hackathon @ General Assembly

With millions of NFC-enabled (Near Field Communications) Android devices sold every month, the search continues for NFC's killer app. A lot is being said and millions poured into secure NFC applications - mostly mobile wallets and payments systems. But very little is done so far to leverage the non-secure aspects of NFC.

Join us for a hackathon at General Assembly where we will explore how NFC can be exploited in gaming (as well as social and Internet of Things) applications. We will have $6,000 in prizes, gear - from smartphones to NFC tags of all kinds and shapes, as well as visual designers and experienced developers, to make your prototype a success. Better yet, we will have representatives from Verizon and venture capital firms looking to help you transform your idea into a real product.

Alongside Verizon, sponsors include Samsung Developers, Facebook, Github, Rackspace, Kinvey, Cellotape and Women 2.0.
