NYC October 2012 Hackathon



New York City is the city that never sleeps, and next week will be no different! From Friday October 19th to Saturday October 20th, the New York City BlackBerry® Developers Group will be hosting a hackathon. Starting at 6:30 PM on Friday and running through to 5:30 PM on Saturday night, local NYC developers are invited to come and develop applications and games using the best mobile tools available.

This event will be super exciting. I’d like to personally challenge everyone to come out, create a stellar app and get it ready for submission to the BlackBerry App World™ storefront. I’ll extend the challenge even further: The first 3 teams/individuals that create an app and get it ready for submission to BlackBerry App World in the time allotted will receive a BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha Device. Create an app, get it ready for submission, and you’ll get a device. Plain, simple, awesome.

Finally, I (@party_pat) will be on hand to help navigate the waters, give a presentation on Cascades™, and to help out where I can. This should be an awesome event, and I can’t wait to see everyone out there.

If you’ve registered already, invite a friend. If you haven’t registered yet, there is no time like the present. The details of the hackathon can be found at
