Event Description

Developer groups, schools and individual participants are invited to participate in the New York City “Internet of Things” hackathon, the second of four regional hackathons sponsored by AT&T to build mobile apps for multiple devices (mobile, desktop, etc.). The New York City hackathon will focus on gaming and artificial intelligence. 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 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. Most importantly, 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 minimal programming skills will have live support from local senior developers, as well as from AT&T, to help speed coding.
