When: Sat April 30, 9:00 PM – 7:00 PM

The Android Hackathon is a not-for-profit event for the Android platform, encouraging development using both the native Android SDK and web standards.

At this one day event, participants will have an opportunity to design, develop and demo a complete application. There will also be a beginner opportunity that will help first-time Android developers become familiar with the basics of the Android ecosystem. The event kicks off on Saturday, April 30, 2011, where ideas and teams will come together. Teams will have the rest of the day to build their applications. Teams will then present their work to the public in the evening and winners will be chosen.

Instead of back-to-back presentations followed by several variations of “Hello World,” Hackathon is all about coding and completing a full-featured Android application using Android technologies. While there will be opportunities to try new APIs and learn new features, teams will be expected to produce a real, working application in one day in return for free meals and a chance for fame and fortune, should one create the next killer app.
