Pioneer Electronics has an upcoming Hackathon for developers October 30 through Nov 2. And they've extended an invitation to the members of our group.
The Hackathon is a 69-hour event at the SEMA show in Las Vegas with OVER $50,000 in cash and prizes. The event is based around mobile OS applications (iOS, Android) that connect to the in-dash Pioneer AppRadio.
There are three categories for the event:
- Voice Interface SNS application
- Location Based Services application
- SEMA Member automotive accessory application.
In each category, 1st place is a $10,000 cash prize, 2nd place is $5,000 cash prize, 3rd place is a $1,000 cash prize. There will be other prizes and giveaways for all participants.
Teams are encouraged to enter. For more information, please visit http://www.pioneerhackathon.com, or contact them at [address removed].

If you'd be interested in sponsoring individuals or a team in conjunction with LA Ruby - please contact me (JR), and we can discuss ways we can help developers from Los Angeles to attend!
