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 visit itcanwait.org to take the pledge.
