eMerge Americas Hackathon

May 1, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - May 3, 2015 @ 3:00 pm UTC-5

In partnership with Ironhack, eMerge Americas is hosting its second annual eMerge Americas Hackathon! This year, the eMerge Americas Hackathon is focusing on developing innovative applications using some of Facebook’s newest technologies.
Hackathon participants will be required to implement their idea using one of these three Facebook products:
Facebook Messenger API – Get whitelisted and be one of the first developers to use the recently released Facebook Messenger API.
React – Join the growing community of developers using Facebook’s most talked about Open Source project. Use React to build your Web application or your native mobile app thanks to React Native.
Facebook Login – Make your login secure and easy for your users on any platform with Facebook Login.
With these Facebook products, participants can build their project on the platform of their choice! This event can be enjoyed by developers of all levels.
The Hackathon will be hosted at Miami Dade College’s Idea Center on May 2nd, and will last 24 hours. Come with a team or come by yourself and join one. With up to $50,000 in cash and prizes ($10,000 in cash guaranteed for the first team!) and the opportunity to build something from the ground up, this will be an event you won’t want to miss!
