Today Salesforce.com launched the Salesforce $1 Million Hackathon, with the largest single hackathon prize ever and the winning app will be announced November 21 at Dreamforce, the world’s largest vendor-led technology gathering.

Hundreds of teams will compete to build the next killer mobile app on the Salesforce Platform and the winner will walk away with $1 million.

“We’re in the midst of a mobile app renaissance,” says Adam Seligman, vice president of Salesforce Platform developer and partner marketing, Salesforce. “Developers are reinventing how business works, and how companies connect with their customers, employees, partners and products in entirely new ways. With the Salesforce Platform, developers are brilliantly more productive, turning ideas into apps faster than ever before leveraging a wide range of mobile, social and cloud services.”
