Turn Your Ideas Into Apps at the Developer Summit Hackathon

AT&T will host its largest hackathon of the year with $100,000 in prizes this weekend in Las Vegas.

Make your mobile app dream a reality this weekend at AT&T’s annual Developer Summit Hackathon in Las Vegas. Developers, designers, students and entrepreneurs will work to fast-build an app from scratch following the theme of connected car, connected home and wearables. These brave developers will build and code their mobile app solution with help from a roster of top sponsors and access to top notch technical experts while they compete for their share of over $100K in cash and prizes; all in just two days! The top three teams will win the chance to live pitch during the AT&T Developer Summit Conference Keynote on Monday, January 5 for a chance to win the grand prize of $25,000.
