Google sponsored HTML5 Hack-a-Thon!

  • Aug 8, 2011 · 12:00 PM
  • Google Kirkland

The event is free of charge but space is limited. To register, please visit the link below:

Over the past year, the web application ecosystem has been growing at an accelerating pace. Faster browsers and powerful web platforms like HTML5 have enabled developers to switch from native code to web based apps.

That’s why the Google Chrome and Commerce teams are holding several HTML5 Web App hackathons around the United States in early August. This is a great opportunity for developers to socialize, network, and play with the latest web APIs. During the hackathons, we'll cover the end-to-end process of developing an HTML5 application, publicizing with Chrome Web Store, and finally monetizing with In-App Payments.

In true hackathon style, participants will have the opportunity to create teams and work on a project together. At the end of the day, participants will present what they have created, and vote on the best apps or games. And of course we’ll have some awesome prizes for the winners.

Below is the itinerary for the day:

11:45-12pm - Check-in
12-1:30pm - Lunch is served & Presentation
1:30-2pm - Pitches & Team organization
2-7pm - Hacking
7-8pm - Dinner is served & Finish hacking
8-9pm - Drinks, Presentations & Voting

    Crowded but good. Topics of discussion were keepers, but the the presentations were lacking a bit of polish.

    I thought that the winning group having brought a more or less pre-finished app to the Hack-a-Thon was a bit unfair to those who coded up their app at the Hack-a-Thon.

    It was a whole lot of fun. Lots of amazing apps were created and I was able to learn a lot. Thank you so much for taking the time to put this on.
