Have an app idea or need an app built for your business?

This very special AT&T Mobile App Hackathon Education, an event produced by the AT&T Developer Program and AT&T Aspire, is designed for attendees both technical & non-technical to build apps/mobile apps to benefit our education system. We will have free food compliments of Amazon Web Services, great speakers, and some awesome prizes provided by our sponsors. Developers, teachers, and students are heavily encouraged to meet new people, scout for teammates, and collaborate to help improve education.

We Supply: Quick presentations and code samples that help to bootstrap your hacking, food to keep you going, and caffeine to keep you awake. Along with technical senseis to assist you in building faster, smarter, and with new tools.

You Bring: Your laptop, skills & ideas. Come with a collaborative, team focused mindset and/or team up in advance on Twitter/Facebook/Google+ via the #atthack hashtag. Whether you are a backend person and code in Ruby/PHP/.NET or are a designer and only work with Illustrator, you are invited to attend this event. Every group needs a good balance of talent and your development skills are needed!
