Recap: TechCrunch Disrupt NYC 2012 Hackathon
Over the past weekend we teamed up with TechCrunch for a hackathon at their Disrupt conference in NYC. This was another 24 hour coding competition with lots of API sponsors offering their own prizes to the groups that made the best use of their services. If you’ve never been to, or heard of the Disrupt conference, you might want to check it out next year – it’s a highly participatory, single track program that attracts a diverse group of attendees, including top CXOs, industry influencers, VCs, startup innovators, corporate professionals and media mavens.

Our awesome co-sponsors included Mashery, about.me, CityGrid, Microsoft BizSpark, Mobli and OpenTok. The panel of judges was equally awesome and consisted of Tarikh Korula of Mahaya, Christina Cacioppo of Union Square Ventures, Kip Voytek of MDC Partners, David Tisch of TechStars, Dinesh Moorjani of Hatch Labs, Nora Abousteit of Kollabora, and Dave Jagoda of Andreessen Horowitz.
Here’s a list and descriptions of the top 3 hackathon winners and links to their projects:
