Re-Commerce Hack Day

Submitted by Crystal C on Mon, 08/15/2011 - 21:24

A few of us here at Zappos (including the API team) are currently in the works of hosting the first Re-Commerce Hack Day on September 16-17, 2011. We're excited to see developers reinvent e-commerce and create some mind-blowing retail vertical experiences. It will be held in sunny Sinicon Valley (aka Las Vegas), and we invite you to come and join our growing tech community!

We'll be providing prizes for Best Overall Application, Most Fun & Weird, and Best Mashup in line with the retail hackathon theme. Additionally, our sponsor partners will be providing prizes for the best use of their APIs as well. (If you're interested in sponsorship, please reach out to us at api@zappos.com)

On Friday night, we'll keep it casual - start out with a few presentations from our partners to hear all about their cool APIs, then we bring out the beer! This is your time to mingle with other hackers and to figure out who you want to work with along with which APIs to use. On Saturday morning, you'll wake up early, drink lots of water to cure your hangover, then start hacking away! We'll be providing food and drinks to keep your energy levels up.

Stay tuned, as official details will be coming up very shortly. In the meantime, live out the quote from your favorite mustachioed developer, Jimmy Jacobson: "Hack the planet!"
