Are you interested in entertainment & love to code? Do you have an idea for an app that will disrupt the way we experience, consume or create content?
Then join us on August 10 - 11 for a special Entertainment-themed hackathon produced by the AT&T Developer Program. This event will bring together developers, designers, & creators to hack innovative & disruptive entertainment solutions. You bring the innovative ideas & designs & we'll bring the tech to help you transform them into apps in just 24 hours.
You Bring...
Your laptop, skills & ideas. Come with a collaborative, team-focused mindset and/or team-up in advance on Twitter/Facebook/Google+ with #atthack. Whether you are a developer, designer, project manager, or just interested in tech, you are invited to attend this event. Every group needs a good balance of talent & your skills are needed! This event will not feature an onsite team formation component so it's highly suggest you arrive with a team to work.
We Supply...
