There is so much fun tech gear available in the Swag Room at this year’s AT&T Developer Summit Hackathon that we wanted to give attendees a chance to start thinking about which two items they might want to choose when they visit the room. Before we get into the products, here’s what you need to know about visiting the Swag Room.
At registration in the morning, you’ll be given a color wristband; this is essentially your ticket to the Swag Room. Next, head to the main Hackathon space by 9:45 a.m., in time for the opening remarks, to find out the time slot people with your color wristband will be admitted into the Swag Room. When your time arrives, head over to the Swag Room and pick one item from each of the two lists of gear available.
