As you know, Heroku is part of the Salesforce Platform. A platform with a growing developer community and broad range of technologies that developers have used to create amazing solutions. So at Salesforce, we thought we’d cook up a little surprise. OK, a huge surprise: the world’s first hackathon with a single $1 million prize.

It’s on. Come to Dreamforce. Build a next­ generation mobile app. And win a million bucks. Really. What better way to say thank you to our developers than to put on the biggest on­site hackathon in history. Today, we are thrilled to launch the Salesforce $1 Million Hackathon!
