Note: This 12 hour event is FREE, but you must RSVP.

This event is open to ALL South Florida core and front-end devs. We also welcome other groups to come join us from WordPress, Drupal.  The more the merrier.

Developers, this is a great way for beginning developers (even students) to learn the ropes, as well as a way for advanced developers to enhance their skills while creating apps and mashups using various APIs or maybe even from scratch without using an API.

At the end of the day, teams and/or individuals get to present their work to a panel of judges and win kickass prizes.

There will also be raffles throughout the day for T-shirts and other items.

If you are a company and want to sponsor, and/or allow developers to create apps using your API, please contact us.

This meetup will be altered to be more updated as each date gets closer.  But basically we are thinking:
