L.A. ‘Internet of Things’ Hackathon to build mobile apps     


L.A. ‘Internet of Things’ Hackathon to build mobile apps for multiple devices Developer groups, schools and individual participants are invited to participate in the "Internet of Things" hackathon, the last of four regional hackathons to build mobile apps for multiple devices (mobile, desktop, etc.).  

Sponsors include AT&T, Intel, Dell, Plantronics, Amazon Web Services, and more. The L.A./Santa Monica hackathon will be held at the ROC Santa Monica, Nov. 15 and 16 and will focus on education and sustainability. Prizes for the best overall app are: 1st place: US$1,000 cash; 2nd place: $500 cash; 3rd place: and $200 cash; Best Education App: $1,000 in gift cards.

First- and second-place finishers will also receive all-expenses-paid trips to the National Accelerator Demo in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the start of the International Consumer Electronics Show from Jan. 3–5, 2014, where they will have the opportunity to pitch their hack and compete for the $20,000 grand prize.

The long-term objective of the hackathon is educational. School projects and school teams are invited to take creation — and not just consumption — of the mobile apps mainstream. Judges from AT&T and Intel will purportedly give equal weight to each entrant’s ability to articulate what the app does, the originality of the idea, and the technical challenges confronted and overcome.

The "Internet of Things" mobile app hackathons are competitive events and designed for attendees (technical and non-technical) to build mobile apps, enjoy great food, and compete for awesome prizes across various categories. The hackathons introduce coders to the latest cutting-edge tools to help deploy their own apps with website backends fully hosted in the cloud.

Participants are free to code in the language with which they are most comfortable, whether it's Objective C, Java, JavaScript, HTML, C #, Dot Net, XNA. Those who might have rusty programming skills will have live support from local senior developers, as well as from AT&T, to help speed coding.
