The growing foursquare community (over 10 million!) is spread out all over the world and it's about time we had a hackathon that reflected our global nature. So, join us over the September 17-18th weekend for a round-the-clock hacking session that's happening all around the world!
In addition to our four official sites (NYC, San Francisco, Tokyo, & Paris) we welcome developers everywhere to band together and build amazing stuff on the foursquare API. There will be prizes, swag, and featured blog posts for the best hacks, no matter where in the world they come from.
So join a foursquare hackathon Meetup in your city on 9/17-18 by signing up. If you can, suggest a venue where people can meetup and hack, or leave a comment to get suggestions going. It's easy to get started and we'll provide tools, resources, and high-fives every step of the way!
Check out this site we put together using our API to see your fellow hackers from all around the world in action!
Submit your hack @ http://fshackathon.appspot.com by the end of Sunday in your local time zone. Be sure to fill out all the fields so we can get in touch with you if/when you win!
September 17-18th, 2011
See our official site schedule!
We'll be featuring all of our hackathon winners prominently in our official blog and app gallery. It's the first step towards ultimate glory and becoming the stuff of legends.
Oh yeah, and we'll be giving out some mindblowingly awesome prizes, like a foursquare TITLE BELT for the most popular hack.
Attendance at the official sites is not guaranteed unless you receive a confirmation from us. And if we can't fit you in, don't forget that we still love you and you can always participate in one of the community hackathons happening in the area: http://www.meetup.com/foursquare-API/. Prizes will be for all hacks, regardless of where they come from!
