Developer Camp 2019
Square, Getaround, Temple Run, OAuth, TestFlight, push.io, and Zūm - each of these have foundations at Developer Camp over the past twelve years. This event is a combination of community support, cooperation, and an idea contest that lasts 48 hours from opening doors to closing ceremony. Apple, Oracle, Google, Amazon, Disney, and Facebook have purchased companies from the winning teams at Developer Camp. You could be next. It is time to celebrate our inclusive, diverse, and equal-opportunity society with an event focused on foundational technologies: AI, VR/AR, and blockchain. Who: Developers, designers, musicians, artists, entrepreneurs, testers, and makers. The elite corps of Developer Camp Counselors — winners of past events, and distinguished members of our community from the Bay Area stand ready to teach and help. What: 48-Hour hackathon for iOS, blockchain, and the Web. This collaborative event, featuring superstar hackers and designers to help everyone learn to code, build custom hardware, and generally make ideas come to life. This year's theme is: foundational technologies. When: February 1st to 3rd, 2019 (Friday evening through Sunday). See our schedule and details. Where: Zūm Offices, 275 Shoreline Drive, Redwood City, CA 94065—open all weekend, and overnight both nights Why: There is a huge opportunity to bring diversity to the technology industry. Women and girls, men and boys, we all deserve more opportunities to start coding using simple, powerful tools. How: Our sponsors offset the cost of attendance, and provide valuable prizes for participants. This is a place for families and children to collaborate as well. Learn more about our upcoming event. This event has catalyzed the launch of award winning startups (like Getaround and Foodspotting), the formation of founder dream teams (Square), and the building of a talented and collaborative community of developers. Out-of-town guests are welcome to join our inclusive event. Though projects will include both solo and team efforts, we encourage attendees to build teams of diverse expertise — business ideas, marketing, design, testing, coding, and back-end development. All attendees should be prepared to participate in the development of a project during the event. Scholarships are available to encourage diversity, and mentors are available.

    “It’s one of the most pure and original hackathons. People come from all around and really just hack on something, meet new people, cherish the relationships that they create here—and go out to create huge companies. The developers we’ve met at Developer Camp are among the best in the world. Some of them have gone on to join our team. We’re excited to be supporting the event again this year... Developer Camp is the best.”
