The growing foursquare community (over 10 million!) is spread out all over the world and it's about time we had a hackathon that reflected our global nature. So, join us over the September 17-18th weekend for a round-the-clock hacking session that's happening all around the world!
In addition to our four official sites (NYC, San Francisco, Tokyo, & Paris) we welcome developers everywhere to band together and build amazing stuff on the foursquare API. There will be prizes, swag, and featured blog posts for the best hacks, no matter where in the world they come from.
So join a foursquare hackathon Meetup in your city on 9/17-18 by signing up. If you can, suggest a venue where people can meetup and hack, or leave a comment to get suggestions going. It's easy to get started and we'll provide tools, resources, and high-fives every step of the way!
OK Guys (and Gals), meetup will be in Seminar Rooms 1 & 2 in Cardiff School of Computer Science & Informatics. We can meet, and guide, you from the main lobby.
Wi-Fi and plug sockets aplenty. There are vending machines for snacks and drinks etc but it has been suggested we can meet all stereotypes and order pizza.
If interested, send a tweet @4sqHackCardiff

See you there!
