Enavigo is hosting an Android/NFC hackathon, with some help from sponsors. Cash prizes, good food, good times and schwag.

Details here: http://tappednyc.even...­

TAPPED: The NFC Accelerator
Make your idea into a Near Field Communications reality! How about the chance to connect with some of the most influential people in mobile and NFC? How about the chance to win some major cash? Tap into that!
Visit our website at for additional details, developer guide and NFC resources.
What it is
TAPPED: The NFC Accelerator is a collection of three free events, with one goal: drive innovation of novel NFC mobile app prototypes built on solid business plans.
Apps will need to focus on:

Social – Enhance, alter, and establish social interactions.
Gaming – Enrich games and possibly take them beyond the digital world and into the physical realm.
Internet of things – build bridges between the Android device and real-world objects. Leverage tools ranging from NFC tags, NFC-enabled appliances, or dedicated NFC-enabled devices built on Arduino and the Raspberry Pi minimal computing platforms.

Your app will need to run on Android, the leading smartphone platform for NFC development. Loaner devices will be available.,
Visual designers will be on hand to help with app user experience and graphics. You will also get a presentation template so you don’t need to worry about making your presentation to the judges look cool (you can still roll your own).
