BlueChilli is proud to be introducing AngelHack and their new hackathon series: AppHACK!

Re-Inventing the Hackathon: Largest developer ecosystem in the world

 

This Fall, AngelHack announced their new hackathon series, AppHACK, which takes place in 35 cities around the world. On 26th and 27th of October, AppHACK is coming to Sydney in an effort help developers educate and collaborate in a 24 hour mobile app competition with the goal of building stronger developer ecosystems, and thus stronger startup communities. Each event will have 1 winner, which will win acceptance into our HACKcelerator pre-accelerator program and have the opportunity to come to San Francisco for our 2 week SF experience.

 

AppHACK will be judged predominantly by CTO’s and you will have to actually demo what you built. PowerPoints and slide shows will not be allowed. Judging will be based on how creative, simple, and impactful your hack might be.
