We are excited to announce the 2014 Autodesk® Exchange Apps Hackathon, a virtual online event that allows developers to work closely with other members of the software development community and Autodesk engineers — in real time, developing new apps for Autodesk Exchange
Anyone can participate from anywhere in the world and at any time both before the event and during the Hackathon days. Autodesk has assembled a great line up of industry and product app development specialists including Jeremy Tammik (Revit), Brian Ekins (Inventor), Cyrille Fauvel (Web Services and Maya) to lead interactive discussions and sessions on architecting apps for the Exchange store as well as how to use a new Autodesk API such as one of our web service APIs.
The Exchange Apps Hackathon is for all types of apps — from simple to complex, from free to monthly subscription apps, from desktop to cloud apps. No matter what industry you develop apps for — AEC, Infrastructure, Product Design and Manufacturing or Media and Entertainment you can use the Hackathon to learn and profit.
The Hackathon is free to enter and will run from 9:00 a.m. U.S. Pacific Time (PT) on Saturday, September 20, 2014 to 4 p.m. PT on September 21, 2014.
