I'm helping organize a hackathon event with HackDays.ca in Regina, on March 17th.
The general idea is developers come in teams of 1 - 3, and have 8 hours to create an application that uses at least one of our sponsor APIs. Teams present their apps at the end of the event, and judges rank them according to presentation, utility, and other factors. Winners will be awarded prizes starting with a MacBook Air for 1st place.
We are also looking for API and Community sponsors for the event. Opportunities to get involved with HackDays include:
$250 - API Sponsorship - your API will be included for the HackDays event, link to your documentation and application examples, opportunity to present your API to all developers the day of the hackathon
$500 - Community Sponsorship - As we do, you believe in supporting and growing the developer community in Regina. We will include your company information on the HackDays site, sponsorship mentions, and work with you to make your HackDays participation all it can be.
$1000 - Party or Food Sponsorship - Opportunity to speak with the developer community and all attendees during either the pre-party on Friday or the hackathon wrap up presentation and evening.
If you are interested in sponsoring the event, please contact me directly at email@example.com
