Calling All Coders: AT&T Public Safety App Hackathon

This blog post was written by Ben Nelson. Ben Nelson is a Sr. Product Marketing Manager for the AT&T Developer Program.

Have you been looking to build an app that will have a real impact on your community? Then our AT&T Mobile App Hackathon focused on Public Safety is for you!

This event will bring together developers, designers, and first responder communications experts in order to disrupt the public safety app market. We will have experts from AT&T, Google, DHS, McAfee and Apperian onsite to assist you in building your apps and launching them into the public safety space. In order to help everyone get their juices flowing the Department of Homeland Security has provided us with four (4) challenges to give everyone visibility into the markets needs.

At the end of the day winners will take down their share of over $25,000 in prizes AND participants will have the opportunity to win cool prizes (e.g. Spheros or Quadricopters) just for speaking with first responders about their apps.
