AT&T Developer Program – Mobile App Hackathon – Sponsored by Qualcomm

Dev-ing. Mobile. Good food. Awesome prizes.


Mobile App Hackathon is an event for mobile developers to come together, network, learn about new technologies and build mobile apps. A full day of coding, drinks, food and snacks and fun contents with prizes across categories. Meet new people and teammates, start projects and work on existing ones, and learn from short talks on technologies and trends that can help you build better apps.

Mobile App Hackathon events are brought to you by the AT&T Developer Program. We are platform agnostic and most interested in helping you, the developer, with understanding your platform development options (Android, Windows Phone 7, Symbian, BrewMP, etc) as well as helping make the right introductions to get your application built.

What introductions you ask? We have secured devs from Sencha, Apigee, PhoneGap and AppMobi to help you code that much faster. We even have Jeff Barr from Amazon coming down to talk about their cross platform solution, so make sure to break out your cameras!

Bring your current projects or start new ones. The AT&T Developer Program will provide phones that you can test and hack on. If you need to test your application on some of the latest phones, now is the opportunity. If you have special requests, please email Alex Donn at [email protected] and I will accomodate your phone testing requests.

Please note that this event will be focused on HTML5/Javascript based mobile apps as the uptake is faster for novices and experts alike when you have code ready to go from Sencha that takes care of your mobile UI. Afterall, do you really want to code those extra lines when you can be out basking in the wonderful San Diego sun? If you are interested in native apps please message us and if the demand is strong enough, we can make it happen.

So where is this event happening at? Qualcomm’s office right next to the golden triangle, right on Mira Mesa Blvd. Qualcomm has graciously opened their facilities to us and there is even parking!
