The hackathon is a contest where various groups of developers/hackers will compete to make the best hack or (in our case) create the best app, for example, using the API provided by the sponsors, or by using Android hardware or smartphone, or achieving a goal proposed by the sponsors, perhaps pursuing social or didactic activities. At the end of the hackathon, participants illustrate the results obtained and a jury evaluate the work rewarding the most deserving ones. The members of the jury are the organizing companies and the sponsors that promote the event. (for more details see the rules)
NOTE: To Register to the Hackathon you must subscribe to F6S platform on which it is based enrollment management.

Having a group of hackers playing with various APIs or products provided by sponsors is a challenge and a way for hackers to get to know and try their skills.
Up for grabs there will be prizes provided by the organizers and sponsors of droidcon.
