Announcing the round-the-clock, round-the-world foursquare hackathon!
Less than a year ago, we hosted our first-ever hackathon, where over 150 developers built projects on top of the foursquare API. We were overwhelmed by the amazing resulting projects. In the months that followed, our developer community exploded, growing to over 10,000 people, and we expanded our platform, giving developers even more to play with!
As the foursquare user community has grown (to over 10,000,000 people, including one president), our developer community has also taken root all around the world. So, when we sat down a few months ago to plan our next hackathon, it was obvious that we couldn’t just host it in one city. We decided to do something a little crazy: organize a giant global hackathon.
Today, we’re super excited to invite you to join the worldwide foursquare community on the weekend of September 17-18th for a round-the-clock, round-the-world hacking session! We’ll be officially hosting sites in New York City, San Francisco, Tokyo, and Paris, but we encourage developers everywhere to band together and build their dreams atop the foursquare API. To help with this, we’ve created a Meetup Everywhere page where you can join other hackers in your city (or even suggest a venue where people can get together and code). Keep your eyes on this page for the latest info, tools, and resources. We look forward to a crazy weekend!
