Join us at the Google Apps Developer Hackathons!

Friday, November 11, 2011 | 12:47 PM

We are very excited to invite all Google Apps developers to our upcoming round of hackathons! We are hosting the hackathons at our Mountain View, CA campus, and at our New York City campus.

The hackathons enable teams of developers to build something integrating the Google experience into a product. Come to the hackathons for fun, food, and the experience. Increase your knowledge of the Google Apps developer platform, while also building something really cool. Meet other developers, Google engineers, and share stories of your integrations and experience. We are handing out prizes for the best projects, including the best new projects, and the best integrations into existing projects -- more details, including the rules and prizes, will be sent out to registrants soon. Don’t worry if you don’t have a team or an existing project-- impromptu teams are great!

Specific details of each event follow. Space is limited, so make sure to register as soon as possible. Confirmation emails are sent to accepted registrants.

Could you setup a remote live session at the Kirkland, WA campus?

We at CodeAcademy.org would love to join the hackathon, but alas we are in Chicago. Given Google's presence in Chicago and the number of developers here, is there any way to add a Chicago location? You are guaranteed a strong showing!

Brandon & Ryan,

We are considering hosting similar events physically in those cities. If we do, we will post about it here.

Thanks!
Vic

Thanks for your interest Abhay. Most of time will be spent with people hacking away at their projects (with only a few short lectures), so we don't have plans to offer a video stream.

We are considering events in India and elsewhere globally for the future. We'll announce them on the blog as they're scheduled.

Vic,
Any chance you're considering an event in Detroit?
