The Friday conference will be the main attraction, while the Workshops on Thursday and Hackathon Saturday will provide the bookends to an amazing event. www.modevtablet.com
MoDev is much more than just another Meetup. We have grown from a grass roots organization of mobile developers to one of the leading mobile technology and business organizations in the country.
Are you ready to compete for over $12,000 in prizes? It’s simple. Come spend a Saturday building the next amazing app by yourself or with a fun group of people and take a shot at many prizes amazing up for grabs. This is day three of the MoDevTablet conference which many of our hackers will be attending. This hackathon is open to individuals and teams. If you’re not on a team already, we’ll put you on one. Not a developer? No issue, teams need designers, marketers and program managers to help craft the next great thing. Come one, come all!
