The Invisible Hackathon (iOS only)
Date: August 08, 2015
Location:Marina Del Rey
The Invisible Hackathon (iOS only). "Invisible Apps" are apps that live in the background, anticipating our needs based on sensor and contextual data, and do things for us before we even have to ask. But for a long time these apps were very difficult and expensive to build. Sense360 is an SDK that makes it easy to build invisible apps that can detect location, activity, and context in the background (i.e. even when the app is closed and the phone is in your pocket). At our "Invisible Hackathon", participants will work in groups to create the coolest "invisible apps" using the Sense360 SDK. Hackathon Details: Note: we don't own your creation. It's all yours!

It was a great experience taking a vague concept and turning it into a usable product in just 24 hours. I’m looking forward to seeing how we can integrate the SDK into some of our client projects in the future." – Ed Arenberg (June 20th, 2015 Los Angeles Hackathon) “The Sense360 platform totally automated our apps core functions, taking it from a 'Maybe I’ll use it today.' to, 'Usability is so effortless, I can use it without thinking about it.'” - Dan Carter (June 20th, 2015 Los Angeles Hackathon) Education Partner: Sponsors: Have questions about The Invisible Hackathon (iOS only)?
