Programmers & developers wanted for Mobile Hackathon Oct 9-10 in Chicago
Just wanted to ensure this was on the radar of folks in the Sencha community who are close to Chicago:
Hope to see you there.
Begin forwarded message:
We're still trying to recruit developers to the event and would really love your help.
The Media Consortium-a network of the country's leading progressive, independent media outlets-in coordination with Hacks/Hackers, is organizing and hosting an Independent Media Hackathon on October 9-10 in Chicago!
Why you should RSVP
Independent Media Mobile Hackathon promises top-notch networking opportunities and the potential to create a game-changing mobile application. A $1,000 cash prize and brand new Xbox will be distributed to developers behind the winning application. http://bit.ly/mobilehack
This is a great opportunity to get your work noticed by local and national media outlets—and score some sweet prizes including cash, ebooks, t-shirts, XKCD comics, merch from Mozilla, and more. Judges include:
- Brad Flora, of The Windy Citizen and Knight News Challenge winner
- Brant Houston, Knight Chair in Investigative and Enterprise Reporting at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign
- Shinji Kuwayama, lead developer at Groupon
We're looking to develop apps within the frame of “News + Fun + Community," that creatively integrate delivery of news/commentary with game mechanics (including gaming, fun, interaction, calls to action)
All prototype apps created at the hackathon should be cross-platform (accessible via mobile web, tablet computer, smartphone, etc.). We are also committed to making open source code available immediately following the hackathon.
