The results of the Developer Week 2013 hackathon in San Francisco are in, and SnowShoer Matt Luedke’s team took second place!
Working along with Scott Shelton and Salim Madjd, Matt turned bar loyalty rewards into a game called Bottlecaps. The Bottlecaps team was the runner-up to Callinize, a caller identification application.
The developers had the chance to experiment with numerous cutting-edge APIs, including one offered by StackMob, one of the conference sponsors. StackMob simplifies development of back-end services like setting up push notification, user sign-ins and analytics. They also tested Swrve, which makes A/B testing a cinch.
Matt said getting the chance to participate and get such great results was a great experience, as was meeting the other participants and attendees.
We’re proud of our SnowShoe colleagues for doing so well amongst the tough competition in San Francisco. This week has been just that much more proof that when it comes to hackathons, SnowShoers are a force to be reckoned with!
