Then join us on April 12-14 for a very special 5G themed Hackathon produced by the AT&T Developer Program. This event will bring together developers, designers, and creators to hack innovative and disruptive mobile solutions that highlight the benefits of 5G. You bring the innovative ideas and designs and we'll bring the tech to help you transform them into apps in just one weekend.
What is an 5G hackathon? 5G mobile networks will open the door to new experiences that will change how we live, work, and play. Faster network speeds and near real time latency will enable new compelling experiences. For this event AT&T invites developers, designers, and creators to imagine and create those experiences by coding mobile solutions that highlight the benefits of a 5G network. Developers will be challenged to build solutions that take advantage of the high bandwidth and/or low latency of a 5G network with accelerator prizes for the best entertainment, gaming, VR/AR/MR and/or IOT solutions.
Your laptop, skills & ideas. Come with a collaborative, team-focused mindset and/or team-up in advance on Twitter/Facebook/Google+ with #atthack. Whether you are a developer, designer, project manager, or just interested in tech, you are invited to attend this event. Every group needs a good balance of talent and your skills are needed! This event will not feature an onsite team formation component so it's highly suggest you arrive with a team to work.
Quick presentations and code samples that help kick start your hacking, food to keep you going, and caffeine to keep you awake. We will have technical mentors to assist you in building faster, smarter, and with new tools. We will also have loaner hardware on-site for you to use in your solutions.
The following is a list of the weekend's agenda:
