Hi Friends,

We all had a shaking, twirling and swirling summer and it will be over soon. We have lined up great events for the Fall and Winter. Let's start with a full day Mobile Hackathon with the support from AT&T Developer Program. 

Interested in building your own app? This hackathon will introduce you the latest cutting edge tools to deploy your own app with a website backend, fully hosted in the cloud. Alternatively, you can come pitch your idea and scout for developer talent, who can help you build your app!

Please RSVP here or EventBrite (preferred) at :

Lot of Giveaways are waiting. 

Mobile App Hackathon is an event for mobile developers to come together, network, learn about new technologies, build mobile apps, get fed, compete for prizes across different categories and most importantly: meet new people and scout for teammates to work on new or current projects.

    Great meetup! This is a chance for talented developers to expand their networks. I hope that we will have a follow-up to this meetup to see the prize winners back to demo their ideas become products...

    Fabulous arrangement and content. Great thanks to AOL, AT&T, other sponsors and hats off to Chida, Shiva and the organizers for making it productive and fun. Also gratitude to appMobi, apigee, Viafo, App47 and others who provided insights into simplifying mobile app development. This was my first Hackathon and I actually built a full prototype for my idea of a mobile app.
