48 Hour Appathon 26 27 28 April 2013

A Mobile OS Agnostic hackathon


Hi guys, I'm reaching out to anyone who is interested in building/designing mobile apps for business. We're hosting a hackathon at our office space in Mosman and need people to help make this a truly successful and fun weekend.

Details below:

Help mobilise a not-for-profit
Are you up for a weekend of action and adventure? Are you looking to throw your talents into finding real solutions to help make the world a better place? Are you excited by the idea of turning your idea into a real solution?
For 48-hours from Friday 26 to Sunday 28 April, alive will be hosting the world-first not-for-profit appathon at its Sydney headquarters (Building 8, 1110 Middle Head Road, Mosman). Designers, developers, marketers and entrepreneurs will work solo or in teams to create mobile solutions that help make a difference to the way a not-for-profit does its work.

On Friday evening six not-for-profits will set out a problem they want solved, then you start the race against the clock, and each other, to come up with a winning mobile solution by Sunday afternoon.

Over the weekend, there will be talks from top industry speakers, activities, and some food, and the alive team and sponsors will be there to talk through ideas. The alive hub will be open for the entire 48 hours: you’re even welcome to camp over if you want.

• Great prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place!
• BBQ Dinner Friday night. Mix with other IT professionals, establish your team and discuss ideas for your mobile app.
• Red Bull providing energy drinks.
• Free Lunches and Dinners all weekend, so you can focus on Mobile app dev.
• Table tennis table/Xbox360!
• OS Agnostic. Build for either iOS/Android/Blackberry/Windows phone of go cross compatible with HTML or other toolset of your choice.
• Fast and reliable Internet.
