Earlier this month, we mentioned an upcoming mobile app hackathon event called BeMyApp. And if you’ve been putting off registering, well, then shame on you. It’s this Friday 7pm through Sunday 9pm at Tech Wildcatters (the Tech Church) at 2700 Fairmount in Uptown. Come meet some cool folks, and compete with others around the world simultaneously in the 2012 Mobile App Olympics. This event is supported by quite a few local user groups, and has gotten some big time press recognition.
For those concerned, neither BeMyApp nor any of the mentors or judges takes any ownership of any of the ideas discussed or apps built during the weekend. The teams assume all ownership and must decide how control will be divvied up after the competition.
So get to registering, then come on down and meet the host, Ben Morrow (firstname.lastname@example.org). I’m sure he will be really busy. But he’ll try to be nice, if you introduce yourself. I KID! I know Ben well, and he’s a super nice guy. (I hope that last comment doesn’t ruin his street cred).
Ben is also co-founder of Liquid, a local Dallas startup designing mobile apps for personal finance. They are launching their app into the Apple App Store this week. Find out more about Ben and Liquid at http://getliquid.com.
