Hi there -
I'm helping organize Mobile App Hackathon - Chicago (downtown) coming up Saturday, August 27 and thought some of you might be interested in attending! It's free and you can register/get more info at http://mobileappchi.eventbrite.com/
Mobile App Hackathon is a one-day, platform-agnostic (Android, iOS, Windows, HTML5, etc developers all welcome) event focused on building mobile apps and demoing them in one day. Beginners are welcome too. Developer support, food, drink and snacks are provided, and there will be some cool prizes - all held at some awesome offices in downtown Chicago (22 W Washington). Plus a few short technical talks from AT&T, Apigee, Sencha and a few other mobile-focused companies and startups so you can try something new if you want. We want to make this event a great place to meet new developers so hope to see some out you out!
Feel free to email with any questions!
