Recap: AT&T Mobile App Hackathon in Dallas
Last weekend we invited Dallas developers to The Grove for a mobile app & IoT hackathon. Despite rain and flash flooding in Dallas, about 90 developers and designers came together to build some awesome projects!
We had a range of projects presented during the final presentations: Some used IoT hardware, some were responsive web apps, and others mixed IoT and mobile apps together. Hackathon teams and individuals were competing for two prizes: 1st Place App & 2nd Place App. At this hackathon, we had a fun twist for deciding the winners – the decision was made entirely by audience voting!

2nd Place App: Coinlocked
“A padlock which uses Bitcoin to control access”
