Dear OC Hackerz,
Our friends up in LA are having a really cool event this weekend which has up to $30,000 in prizes to give away. This would be a really good experience for any of you to take part in. If you are interested in attending / representing OC Hackerz, please ensure you are registered on www.ochackerz.com and shoot me an email with your project idea or skills. We have an app idea and could really use android developers to join our team.
If we win 1st prize 30k will be split between all individuals on OC Hackerz team.
You can find more information at http://mobileappitcanwait.eventbrite.com/
Have an innovative app idea? Come code your dream app and help develop a solution to put an end to texting while driving.
This is a truly unique AT&T Mobile App Hackathon, an event produced by the AT&T Developer Program, focused on our "It Can Wait" don't text and drive campaign. Our event 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. Spend the weekend coding and then join us on Tuesday, September 18th where top teams will present their final apps and the big winners will be chosen!
Texting while driving is a common and dangerous habit. According to a recent AT&T Wireless survey 75% of teenagers consider it "common" for their friends to text while driving. Over 100,000 automobile accidents a year involve a driver texting and drivers that do text while driving are 23x more likely to be in an accident. Please join us at this hackathon to make the road a safer place and visititcanwait.org to take the pledge.
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!
