Today is the deadline for the submitting your iPhone App to the Hackathon. It doesn’t need to be a complete app – find something undocumented and share it! Show us how you made something work! Create a cool demo of a feature we didn’t know about! Remember, your iPhone App doesn’t have to be perfect, just be enough that other people can learn from it!
The complete rules are on the Contest page. But in summary, your submitted iPhone App must not currently be available via the iTunes App Store OR if it is available, you must have source code available on a public website. iPhone Web Apps are always eligible. In addition, please do not submit iPhone OS 3.1 or Jailbroken apps for the Hackathon.
All entries for the Hackathon Show should be submitted to the Hackathon web site at http://developer.yahoo.com/hacku/register . If there are more submissions then what we have time to demonstrate, submissions that offer source code will be given first priority, then submissions that the moderators think are “cool”. While you are waiting, help us rearrange the lunch room for the Show.
Each satellite iPhoneDevCamp should have one or two iPhone Apps selected from their attendees to submit to the Hackathon Show. They should prepare a short ~3m video and email it to ChristopherA@iPhoneDevCamp.org before 1:45pm PDT.
The Hackathon Show will begin in the lunch room. Demos should be around 3 minutes, so practice your presentation before you get to the podium. We will have two overhead projectors set up so that we can transition from demo to demo quickly. You can also use a Mac with the iPhone Simulator to demonstrate your App. Demos from iPhoneDevCamp satellites should be an ~3 minute video file.
We look forward to seeing your apps!
