The Foursquare Hack Day PH is where scores of developers would assemble to write mobile applications using the Foursquare API with the goal of producing the best app at the event. Developers can create whatever idea they think is wonderful using Foursquare's data. Want to create a coffee shop locator app? Go ahead. How about a "this-store-is-holding-a-sale-right-now" app using Foursquare's check-in info? Why not, right?
And to secure the legitimacy of this event, an engineer from Foursquare would fly to the Philippines to observe and supervise the progress and products of the participating teams.
Interested in joining? Form a team of two or three and be ready to shell out P1,000.00*. Registration starts from October 29 until November 24, 2012. The event itself would be held on December 1, 2012 at Sadoce, 12/F of the Smart Tower in Ayala, Makati.
To register, just go to hackday.webgeek.ph and click the hanging Smart Devnet ribbon at the right side of the screen. Registrations will be done online. Walk-in registrations will not be accommodated.
The event's official Twitter hashtag? #4SQHackPH
