Back in July the AT&T Developer Program sponsored a mobile hackathon up in Redmond, Washington. This was an all day event heavily focused on building apps for the following three platforms:
- Mobile Web
- Windows Phone
One team shined brighter then all the others and built an augmented reality first-person-shooter game. It's amazing to see what they could get done in a single day. Included below is a short video where give a demo of the app and briefly explain how they built it. Did I mention this was built using the Beta1 tools for Windows Phone Mango?!
The next mobile app hackthon will be held on October 15th in Seattle, Washington. There is no charge to attend this event, but you do need to register in advance. I won't be able to attend, as I'll instead be attending the Portland Startup Weekend. If you're thinking of attending the hackathon, be sure to register now. Let me know if you do attend, I'd love to see what you build.
