SIC Wearables Hackathon October 26-27 + Winners Featured at SIC2013

SIC x AT&T Wearables Hackathon

What would you build if you could simply and easily store data from thousands of devices deployed in the real-world and connected via wifi and cellular networks?

Seattle Interactive Conference and the AT&T Developer Program, with support fromCobalt, Greenqloud and Microsoft, have partnered to create a unique Hackathon event on the weekend of October 26-27 at REACTOR, 2820 Elliott Ave at Broad St, Seattle, WA 98121 (new venue), immediately prior to SIC.

AT&T is launching a service that enables developers to simply and easily store large sets of connected device data directly in the cloud. We invite you to participate in an opportunity to obtain early access to the service and to collaborate with us to build a powerful developer-focused ecosystem. The best applications and services built at the the Wearables Hackathon will have the chance win prizes and meet with the Business Development team from AT&T's M2M group.

This two-day Hackathon will cover the ins and outs of the service, the client libraries, and will include the participation of ecosystem partners. Snacks, lunch, dinner and beverages included!

Five finalists will then present their concepts at the Seattle Interactive Conference on Tuesday afternoon, on-stage and in front of our hand-selected industry judges.

Staff members from HaikuDeck.com will be available and on-site to help you with your presentations for Tuesday if you are selected as a finalist. The winner of the hackathon will have the option available to them to showcase their product at SIC://2014.

Where: REACTOR, 2820 Elliott Ave at Broad St, Seattle, WA 98121 (new venue)
Dates: Saturday, Oct 26th + Sunday, Oct 27th
