We’re so excited to be co-organizing HackMTL 2 on June 9th at the Cossette headquarters in downtown Montreal! This wil be the followup to the awesome inaugural HackMTL event back in November of 2010. HackMTL is a part of the awesome series of HackDays events that happen all year round – from the HackDays.ca website:
HackDays bring together the brightest geeks in technology across Canada. We hack together in a single day awesome applications using local APIs. We select local APIs, make them available to developers with expert guidance from the API providers and an environment where you are going to be excited about hacking and creating! The HackDays hackathons are also a competition: as a developer you will compete for great prizes and glory! And who knows: perhaps you will meet the team you will be building your next startup with at HackDays.
Along with YellowAPI, we’ve brought together some of the coolest international, national and local APIs for you to take advantage of! Participating APIs include: SendGrid, Rdio, FreshBooks, Shopify, TinEye, CakeMail, StatusNet, Wajam, Atomic Reach, Primus, data sets from the STL and the STM, as well as support and a sponsored prize from MontrealOuvert and NordOuvert. These APIs all lend themselves perfectly to our “Local/Social” theme. From email to geodata to social sharing and more, we’ve got you covered. Come for the $3000+ in prizes, amazing food, beer and company, stay for the awesome hacks you’ll see created and friendships you’ll make!
