With hundreds of millions of devices running one or more of the 60,000 Appcelerator-powered mobile apps, we are inspired by the impact you are creating in the world – and humbled by the fact that you’ve all chosen our technology to do it.
To help celebrate this, we’re excited to launch another hackathon chock-full of prizes designed to highlight the amazing enterprise apps you are building.
To be eligible, simply enter an Appcelerator app that is B2B or B2E focused. That can be anything from an app that helps a company manage finances, to an app that integrates with your Salesforce backend, to an app that allows your drivers to navigate the shortest route to their delivery.
You’ve got the skills. We’ll bring the technology. Now put them to good use and get started. We can't wait to see what you create!
Any individual or team that has built an app using Appcelerator is eligible to enter. It can be an app you built prior to this contest or one you are building now. Take a look at the judging criteria, and submit your app!
