If you’re a developer and uses foursquare a lot, be sure to mark December 1, 2012 on your calendar for Foursquare Hack Day Philippines.
Foursquare is a location-based social networking service that allows users to “check in” at specific locations and share information with their social networks. It is widely used worldwide and has a large fan base in the Philippines. Foursquare apps are available in all leading mobile platforms including iOS, Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone.
Interested developers must form a team composed of two or three members, and register at http://hackday.webgeek.ph/ Ticket price is pegged at P1,000 per participant, but a 50% discount will be given to those who will register from November 12 to 17.
Attractive prizes await developers who will build the best mobile app using the foursquare API. Apps will be judged based on the quality of software development, user experience, user interface, innovation, and quality of demo pitching. Participants may use a mix of programming languages, application frameworks, and development tools during the 9-hour hackathon. They must demo their app using a smartphone.
Foursquare Hack Day Philippines, the first foursquare-approved developer event outside the United States, is organized by SMART Developer Network (DevNet) and WebGeekPH. It will be held at 12/F Smart Tower 2, 6799 Ayala Ave, Makati.
