As part of the Woodstock for Cloud Developers, we at ProgrammableWeb are co-hosting the Cloudstock Hackathon on December 6th. Cloudstock is a free one day conference in San Francisco hosted by Salesforce for cloud developers of all kinds. The hackathon will be emceed by David Berlind and will include great prizes for top projects.
The Hackathon is where developers get a chance to show their stuff by mashing-up multiple APIs, either in teams or by themselves. At the end of the afternoon it’s demo time. Each team will have a chance to give their elevator pitch and show off their app. Judges include ProgrammableWeb founder John Musser and VentureBeat’s Matt Marshall.
Great prizes await the winners. Top developers can walk away with a MacBook Pro and iPad for each member of the team (up to three). There will also be prizes in a few special categories such as best mobile app and most commercial potential. Additional prizes will be given by providers specifically for innovative uses of their APIs.
The Hackathon, as with all of Cloudstock, is completely free. Find out more at the Cloudstock website.
