AT&T Summit Day 1 in pictures: Hackers, swag, and the wheel of awesomeness
Over 800 attendees checked-in to participate in the annual AT&T Developer Summit Hackathon held at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. Some people came from various spots around the globe, while others drove all night to arrive on time, and all brought with them a passion for building innovative apps. After an overview of some of the challenges that included the technologies available for developers to use, everyone got busy flushing out ideas and coding. Amidst all the fun and learning, of course there’s a ton of swag. This year, we spun the color wheel of awesomeness every 90 minutes to find out which group could visit the Swag room next.
So it begins… opening remarks, team formation, swag, food, and fun!
Coffee, check. Gear, check. Cool Hacker T-shirt, check!
