Meet Our Mentors @ the Developer Summit – Introducing another mentor
Hackathons are about co-creation, community and sharing knowledge. To uplevel this year’s hackathon, we have reached out to successful entrepreneurs and asked them to be dedicated mentors for the 2015 AT&T Developer Summit Hackathon.
Why you ask? Because we believe that the path to success is through co-creation within a vibrant community that amplifies your drive and supports your technical interests. In delivering on this belief, we are very happy to announce that Wesley Chan will be joining us at the 2015 AT&T Developer Summit Hackathon in Las Vegas on January 3-4 as a dedicated mentor.* He’ll have specific sessions set up to help you achieve your entrepreneurial dreams.**
