Macadamian’s Second Annual MacHack

Geoffrey Parker

No boring training days here…

MacHack 2013

We’re currently ramping up for the second annual MacHack, our intense 24-hour application development marathon. It’s a great way for us to have fun and stay current on the latest development and design techniques and trends. This year a total of 60 Macadamian staff members are participating simultaneously from our four global offices located in Gatineau, California’s Silicon Valley, Yerevan in Armenia and Cluj-Napoca in Romania. The event kicks off Saturday, April 13 at 8 a.m. ET.

Follow us on Twitter  to get live updates as our teams dream up, demo and deliver a slick pack of drool-worthy apps — from scratch, in just 24 hours. Each product must be themed on at least one of these categories: BlackBerry 10, big data and the cloud. All the apps are judged and winners get some cool prizes. We’ll be tweeting with the hashtag #MacHack.

Tell us what kind of apps you’d like to see!
