The 2015 Mobile App Hackathon is a 24 hour competition designed for attendees (technical & non-technical) to build apps/mobile apps, get fed, compete for prizes across different categories and most importantly: meet new people and scout for teammates to work on new or current projects. This hackathon will introduce you to the latest cutting edge tools to help deploy your own app with a website backend, fully hosted in the cloud.

Bring your laptop, skills & ideas to ‘Iolani School's Sullivan Center on Friday, February 13 and Saturday, February 14. Come with a collaborative, team focused mindset and/or gather your team prior to the event to create a unique app. Whether you are a backend person, designer, entrepreneur, student, or just interested in tech; you are invited to attend this event. Every group needs a good balance of talent and your development skills are needed!

We'll supply you with quick presentations and code samples that will help you to bootstrap your hacking, food to keep you going, and caffeine to keep you awake. Along with technical senseis to assist you in building faster and smarter with new tools.
