Pace University to host “BeMyApp Mobile App Olympics: 48hr hackathon with TechMeetupsNYSA”
Friday, February 24, 2012 at 6:00 PM – Sunday, February 26, 2012 at 6:00 PM (ET), New York, NY
WHO and WHAT: BeMyApp Mobile Olympics is a three-day mobile app hackathon which brings together the most creative developers, designers, marketers and ideas people to collaborate on building a working mobile app prototype. Participants will have the opportunity to: get a team around an app idea, build the prototype, and receive instant feedback on the project from a panel of seasoned judges and peers; discover, try out, and test app development tools and APIs; meet people across various disciplines and learn new skills.
Registered idea generators are given 1 minute to pitch an app concept on Friday evening to an audience filled with fellow idea generators, developers, designers and marketing gurus. Idea generators look to form teams around their app idea. At the end of the networking and bargaining, the ideas are announced that will be made into working prototypes.
Teams work throughout the weekend to build working mobile app prototypes which they present to a panel of judges on Sunday evening. Prizes will be given out for the best and most creative apps, which will help the most successful teams take their apps to market.
WHEN and WHERE: Pace University’s downtown New York City campus, One Pace Plaza on Friday, February 24, 2012 at 6:00 PM – Sunday, February 26, 2012 at 6:00 PM. Locations: Lecture Hall South on Friday. Lecture Hall West on Saturday and Sunday.
