Are you interested in entertainment and love to code? Do you have an idea for an app that can highlight how 5G will disrupt the way we experience, consume or create content?
Then join us on April 12-14 for a very special 5G themed Hackathon produced by the AT&T Developer Program. This event will bring together developers, designers, and creators to hack innovative and disruptive mobile solutions that highlight the benefits of 5G. You bring the innovative ideas and designs and we'll bring the tech to help you transform them into apps in just one weekend.
What is an 5G hackathon? 5G mobile networks will open the door to new experiences that will change how we live, work, and play. Faster network speeds and near real time latency will enable new compelling experiences. For this event AT&T invites developers, designers, and creators to imagine and create those experiences by coding mobile solutions that highlight the benefits of a 5G network. Developers will be challenged to build solutions that take advantage of the high bandwidth and/or low latency of a 5G network with accelerator prizes for the best entertainment, gaming, VR/AR/MR and/or IOT solutions.You Bring...
