Are you a developer, entrepreneur or startup looking to create the next generation of mobile interactive technologies? This event might be remembered as the tipping point – the pivotal two days – when Near Field Communication (NFC) technology became more than a promise.

And you might be remembered as somebody who made it happen.

You’re invited to the Isobar Create 32 NFC Hackathon @ APPNATION III.


Near Field Communication (NFC) technology will let us make transactions, exchange digital content, and connect electronic devices like never before. Your phone will be your credit card, boarding pass, hotel room key, coupons at the supermarket. You’ll buy only the 3 minutes you need on the parking meter.

It’s an amazing future that can continue to emerge. Or it can bust through the door now, screaming your name for all eternity.

The sleep-deprived, caffeinated, hero-making details.



Who: This is an open invitation to mobile software developers, entrepreneurs and start-ups to be the first to explore the possibilities of NFC like never before.

What: Today, the NFC thought-scape is dominated by mobile payments. Isobar Create 32 @ APPNATION III will be Silicon Valley’s first hackathon of its kind to explore the NFC chip inside next generation mobile devices to find greater uses for this exciting new technology. Unlike other hackathons, applications can be programmed on any NFC-enabled smartphone platform you choose (Google Nexus S, Nokia N9, Samsung Galaxy, Blackberry, etc.).

When: 32 hours around the clock: Wednesday, November 30 at 8:00am – Thursday, December 1 at 4:00pm. At the end, you’ll hand your apps over to an all-star cast of judges – consisting of some of the most notable innovators, venture capitalists and influencers in the tech community – to judge the top three projects.

Where: At APPNATION III, San Francisco Design Center, 635 8th Street, San Francisco.

Why: This is your opportunity to showcase your innovations in front of the massive APPNATION audience (3,000+) of leading investors, partners, buyers and more. Winners will receive various prizes, cash, some good PR, and the opportunity to launch their app and/or business on one of technology’s biggest stages.

How: Isobar Create 32 is part of APPNATION III that draws thousands of developers, carriers, product/service providers, buyers and investors each year. Register now for Isobar Create 32 (it’s FREE!), and you’ll receive a complimentary Expo/Keynote pass for APPNATION III. (Note: All registered hackers must work on an application project during the 32-hour event.)
