Want to hack with some of the best API folks in the business? Attend API Hackday PDX
Now, we all know that Portland has a thriving hacker culture. From weekly hackathons to Dorkbot to open source projects, we like our hacking around here.
But sometimes, it’s interesting to get some new people in the mix—especially if they have interesting APIs. And that’s why API Hackday PDX, July 30, could be a whole bunch of awesome.
And what are all of these talented folks going to do?
API Hackday PDX brings developers together the Saturday after OSCON for an all-day coding fest focused on building apps and mashups with APIs. Developers of all experience levels can share ideas, collaborate on existing projects, start new ventures, and find out about great tools and new APIs to play with.
Hackers will also hear from some of the country’s top API-focused companies on tips, tricks, and tools for building the next big app. At the end of the day, teams and/or individuals get a chance to present their work to a panel of judges and win kickass prizes.
And did I mention, it’s free? Oh. And you also get fed. And beveraged. For free. Free. Also? It’s free.
Now what are you waiting for? What’s that? You want something more? Fine. Pre-func the API Hackday at the Low Brow.
There. Happy now? Good. Go get registered for API Hackday PDX on July 30. And then happy hacking, you crazy kids.
