MobileHackDays(TM): Los Angeles' First Mobile App Hackathon Defines a New Trend in LA Tech(August 15, 2011)
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 15, 2011
MobileHackDays LA is the first all-mobile Hackathon to take place in Los Angeles, CA at the Aviation Room (3400 Airport Ave, Bldg D, Santa Monica, CA, 90405) from September 16th-18th, 2011. The event is a 3 day event starting Friday evening, and going through until Sunday evening where mobile software developers, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and designers will all organize and build a mobile application or mobile startup from scratch in 2 days and one evening. At the end of the event, a panel of judges comprised of notable mobile software developers, venture capitalists, and designers will select a winner who will receive 10 minutes of face time with a panel of VC's interested in investing in mobile to make their case for getting funded.
The event represents a new cultural aspect of the Los Angeles software development community where the stereotypes of the socially maladjusted software developer are being thrown out. The even touts luxurious LA-style pampering features such as a masseuse to calm sore muscles from sitting and writing code all day, juice bar, and a film crew for a startup show.
The iPhone and Android LA User groups which have grown to approximately 500 members will likely represent a good majority of the attendance, including some of Los Angeles' most talented mobile engineers, and from surrounding areas such as Ventura, Riverside, Orange County and San Diego.
In addition to the local development community, many reputable book authors on iPhone and Objective-C programming and Android programming have been confirmed for the event.
The MobileHackDays brand plans to expand out into San Francisco and New York City Metro within the next 6 months, bringing the Los Angeles developer culture to various cities around the country, and helping to evangelize the acceleration of the mobile software market, which is expected to increase to approximately $25 billion by 2015.
