More than 250 computer programmers, graphic designers, and entrepreneurs have signed up for this weekend’s free AT&T Mobile App Hackathon taking place at the University of Miami Life Science & Technology Park in Miami. Several groups will be joining the event from Latin America, too. At least $5,000 in prizes will be offered, organizers say.
A hackathon brings together computer programmers, graphic designers, and business developers for a day or a weekend to create software and apps. Starting at 6 p.m. Friday and running through Sunday evening, the participants will break into teams and collaborate to create mobile applications that could form the foundations of future tech startups.
More than a dozen speakers and mentors from Refresh Miami, Lean Startup Circle, CareCloud and other local organizations and companies will assist the teams. Sponsors will provide access to APIs, or specifications for building software applications, from AT&T, Amazon, Github and Almira Labs.
