Creating a lasting relationship with developers is about making a connection and then nurturing it. They don’t want tee shirts (most of them have plenty of cool ones already). Broadly, they want access to a great product (your API); a business model that rewards them; a community in which to collaborate and help each other; and an overall great experience.
"Calling all mobile app hackers, hustlers and hipsters to hack your way through Opera House content over 24 hours with the aim to produce a creative mobile app experience for visitors to the Opera House.” ~ Sydney Opera House.
Apigee is delighted to support this first ever mobile apps Sydney Opera House hackathon on December 7-8. For the winner there’s a whopping $4,000 prize up for grabs and millions of users. Sounds like a great weekend opportunity for developers down under!
One of the most fun things we get to do at Apigee is participate in Hackathons. It’s a great place for companies (like ours or our clients’) to collect feedback about how developers use their products and what they want to build with them. We shot this short recap of what a hackathon feels like a little while ago — hoping it’ll convince a few of those that haven’t tried it to join us next time! Our next hackathon will be in LA / Santa Monica on Feb. 9
