AndroidHackathon event in SF Bay area next weekend

The Android Hackathon – Silicon Valley is the first hackathon in the SF Bay Area focused on Google Android-based applications. It is a free working event for developers, designers, and testers to build native applications for the Android platform.

The event is inspired by BarCamp, SuperHappyDevHouse, and iPhoneDevCamp. Attendees, which include developers, web developers, UI designers, and testers, come together over a short time in an informal environment to build new Android applications. Development projects will include both solo and team efforts. We encourage attendees to team up, based on expertise, to work in ad-hoc project development teams. All attendees should be prepared to work on an application project during the event.

Individuals and teams that finish their projects are invited to present their applications at the March 17th meeting of the Silicon Valley Android Meetup. The audience will vote for their favorites. The top projects will receive prizes.

The Android Hackathon is free to attend, but it has a limited number of spaces. Reserve your space as soon as you can. If your plans change, please cancel your reservation to allow another to attend.  If you’re unable to go as an attendee but still want to participate, Hackathon is also looking for volunteers to help run the event.

Android Hackathon takes place Saturday, March 13, 2010 from 10:00am-10:00pm.  Registration and more information can be found at AndroidHackathon.
