Developers who will be in or near San Francisco this Saturday may want to consider whether or not there’s room for a hackathon on their calendars. Speek announced today that it will hold a hackathon to explore app ideas related to VOIP technology.
For better or worse, this will not be a multi-day event with thousands of dollars in prize money at stake. The hackathon will just range from around 10 AM to 10 PM on Saturday, with an hour or so for registration beforehand and maybe some partying taking place afterward.
Admission’s free, food and drinks will be provided, and prizes will include an iPod Touch and an iPad, however, which all sounds pretty nice.
Otherwise, a statement on the subject indicated, “Developers are invited to participate in building interesting voice-enabled applications/prototypes leveraging the Speek Voice API. . . . The hackathon judges will be Clay Loveless (Co-Founder, Mashery), Danny Boice (Executive Director of New Media / Web Technology at The College Board) with a 3rd judge to be named later.”
You can register for the hackathon here if any of this sounds interesting.
