Google and Year One Labs are hosting a hackathon in Montreal on January 22nd, and pairs of coders will be competing to see who can build the best web app in under eight hours.
Using Google’s App Engine, the coders will have a full day to produce a quality product for a panel of judges. Since it is Google’s App Engine that’s powering this whole event, the product manager of the App Engine, Sean Lynch, will be in attendance to help out and provide guidance for contestants. After the competition, all participants are invited to the after party at RPM.
This free event is an excellent way to get acquainted with the cloud services that Google has to offer. It takes place on January 22nd from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. at RPM Montreal. For more information or to register, click here.
