Subject: Re: NFC Hack Event
I am looking for 3 - 4 people to form a team for a weekend NFC Developer Challenge in London at the end of next month;
NFC is slated to be the next big technology thing this year. The mobile operators are staring to roll out handsets that support NFC and we are seeing a lot of interest around things like mobile payment and asset tracking using this technology.
I was wondering if there is anyone within the #ljc & #gdc with skills around Java / Android / Web development interested in doing this with me. I have an idea for the event and already have a core platform built out using Android and AWS that I want to extend to include NFC. I need people to get in touch with me pretty quickly so that I can get a team registered for the event.
Alternatively, if you want to put your own team together or go along as an individual and see if there is a team on the day looking for members, then visit the link above and register yourself.
There are prizes being offered for the winning team, and win or lose it should be a good crack and something that you can include on your CV.
