Due to Hurricane Sandy's devastation in NYC, our hackathon headquarters, we've been forced to postpone the Foursquare Hackathon to January 5, 2013.
If you still want to meet-up and hack this weekend, please don't let us stop you! We won't be able to offer the online technical support we'd hoped to and hacks won't count for our eventual hackathon, but if you submit them to http://bit.ly/TutgfL we'll send a remote controlled, inflatable shark and swag packs to the teams who build the best 3 connected apps this weekend.
You guys! The foursquare hackathon is back! And this year, we’re inviting you to hack foursquare itself. Our all-new Connected Apps platform (https://developer.foursquare.com/overview/apps) lets you to hack new functionality directly into the core foursquare experience and make them discoverable to the over 20 million people already on foursquare.
On Nov. 3, we’ll open up our NYC & SF offices for a connected apps hackathon of epic proportions. And just like last year, we’re inviting developers all around the world to join us by banding together in their hometowns and hacking up some awesome connected apps of their own. We’ll have prizes, swag, and (naturally) global glory for the best foursquare hacks, no matter where in the world they come from.
So join a foursquare hackathon Meetup in your city and keep an eye on http://hackathon.foursquare.com for more details as the event draws nearer. 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!
