Samsung Gear S3 from HERE Technologies
HERE Technologies will be proposing a theme for this year's Hackathon (wonder what that will be focused on...?!!??!) and every member of the winning team will receive a Samsung Gear S3. That's a pretty stunning prize for two days of fun, intense coding.
The Samsung Gear S3 has all the latest Smartwatch features and also has a classic look to go with all your best outfits.
- Meet with like-minded Android-ers, share your ideas and create new solutions.
- Engage with expert mentors to help develop your project.
- See your ideas really come to life.
- Put your project in front of industry-leading judges. Yikes!
How Does It Work>> All hackathon participants meet on Saturday morning (6 April). The hackathon sponsors outline the themes for the hackathon and the prizes associated to each theme. Participants pitch their ideas for development (the themes are also released in advance of the hackathon so that participants have the chance to pre-plan their ideas).
>> Everyone divides into teams and, for the rest of Saturday, overnight, and most of Sunday, works on developing & building the ideas into full fledged, operational solutions.
>> Sunday evening, work stops and each team presents their solution to the judges and all of the participants.
>> Sunday evening (7 April) the judges award the winner and runner-up prizes for each theme category.You can see more detail in the hackathon rules.
>> FYI, participants must bring their own hardware (i.e. laptop, PCs, mobile devices, extension cords, etc.)
>> Tutors and Mentors will be available in-situ during the hackaton to assist all the participants.
