HackVAN hackathon. For the hackers!

Net Tuesday is taking August off, but that doesn’t mean you have to stay home bored. Or get sunburned on the beach. You’ve got options! Check this out…


HackVAN is taking place on Saturday August 20, 2011. One day after the GROW conference in Vancouver. At HackVAN we bring together developers, hackers and designers to learn about APIs and build awesome applications to win fantastic prizes. HackVAN is an all day hackathon starting at 9 AM and ending at 6 PM. Previous sold-out HackDay hackathons were held in Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Waterloo. And now we are headed to Vancouver! HackVAN will start with brief API presentations and workshops. Developers then team up (or work solo) to build an application in a single day.

At the end of the day, every single completed application will be presented to our industry judges. They will select the winning applications. There will be awesome prizes to win – including a MacBook Air – and great exposure for your application.

Registration is open:

HackVAN is made possible by our awesome sponsors: Context.IO, Freshbooks, Grow 2011, Shopify, TinEye, YellowPages.
