About a week ago, an old colleague Nitin Gupta reached out to me with an exciting proposition. He asked if Intuit would be interested in sponsoring the inaugural Koding hackathon and if I would be interested in being a judge. I took a quick look and immediately knew I had to say yes!
Koding itself is a developer community and cloud development environment. It’s exciting to see them be the 1st to run a truly worldwide, virtual hackathon. A total of 1000 teams will be selected to participate in the event December 6-7.
As a sponsor, Intuit is offering an additional prize of $2500 USD to the team that makes the best use of the QuickBooks API in an application that serves the millions of small businesses around the world. Need ideas of what types of apps help small businesses? Check out existing apps on QuickBooks apps.com, the four winners from the QuickBooks Connect Hackathon, or the apps built at the Money 20/20 Hackathon.
I can’t wait to see what the teams create during this hackathon. Lucky for me, I don’t have to judge all 1000 entries myself – there’s an amazing team of judges lined up for this event.
It’s not too late to sign up: you have until 12pm PST on November 21st to register. What are you waiting for?
