This weekend, join us for a Java Hackathon at the Heroku office in San Francisco.
We've decided to kick things off with a contest. To enter, build a creative and/or useful application that enables or manages interactions with customers or potential customers via social media channels. It can be any social media channel, and your app will be judged on how well it fits the contest criteria as well as the quality of your concept and implementation.
The overall winner will receive a $500 Amazon gift card and a $500 Heroku credit. Two runners up will win a $100 Heroku credit.
Here are the basic rules to enter:
For the official rules of the contest, please see this page. If you have questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a good excuse to get familiar with the Heroku platform and how productive you can be by using it. Learn the basics on our Java DevCenter page and of course, we're more than happy to help you if you can make it out to the Hackathon.
