Description

Developer groups, schools and individual participants are invited to participate in the “Internet of Things” hackathon, the third of four regional hackathons sponsored by AT&T and Intel to build mobile apps for multiple devices (mobile, desktop, etc.). The Boulder hackathon will be held at the CU Boulder Engineering Center, November 1st to 2nd, and will focus on gaming and artificial intelligence. Prizes for the best overall app are:  1st place: $1,000 cash  2nd place: $500 cash  3rd place: $200 cash  Best Gaming App:  1st Place  Assistance in completing your game from Sr. Architects at WildTanget  Featured status in the AT&T WildTanget Android store  First- and second-place finishers also will receive all-expense-paid trips to the National Accelerator Demo in Las Vegas, Nev., at the start of the International Consumer Electronics Show® from Jan. 3 to 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 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 rusty programming skills will have live support from local senior developers, as well as from AT&T, to help speed coding.  For more on the AT&T Developer program, please visit developer.att.com.
