London is Calling all talented developers and designers. So if you are in town or can find your way down, join Isobar Create London (together with O2), for the UK’s first developer event that will challenge people to pioneer new and innovative uses of Near Field Communications (NFC) technology.
It’s an open invitation, and with the number of Africans in diaspora – especially London, and other European city, we look forward to a good representation in helping to define the future of this exciting technology. In addition to being amongst the first people to get a hands on opportunity with the latest in NFC technology, you’ll have a chance to win loads of goodies such as mobile handsets, and even have your idea brought to life courtesy of a kick-starter fund from BlueVia.
There’d be guest speakers you’d want to meet and food + entertainment provided throughout. If that’s good enough, then register here. Read on for more information:
When: Saturday March 24th, through the night to Sunday March 25th. Doors open 8am on Saturday for a 10am kick-off. Teams to finish and present ideas at 4pm on Sunday.
Where: Shoreditch Studios, Old Street, London – Map
Who: Isobar Create London, together with O2, is for developers and designers who have big ideas, the skill to bring them to life, and who aren’t scared of working through the night.
If you wondering on what types of NFC applications you can develop, then have in mind that teams to pioneer new uses of NFC are wanted, with focus on the retail industry, the leisure and entertainment industry, the finance industry, and sporting events.
What’s for grabs? There will be a variety of swag to give out to the winning teams and runners up, plus a chance to win the latest Blackberry and Samsung mobile devices, and other fantastic prizes to be announced.
