Verizon was a key sponsor of the TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco (SF) Hackathon on September 16-17, 2017 at Pier 48 in San Francisco.

 

Developers and Engineers descended from all over the world to take part in this 24-hour hacking event to build a new product and present it on the Disrupt SF stage to a panel of expert judges. Hundreds of Developers and Engineers competed for a variety of prizes using the ThingSpace and MapQuest APIs.

 

The Hackers were judged on the creativity of their idea, the difficulty of their technical implementation, the number of ThingSpace APIs (including Device Messaging, Smart Cities and MapQuest APIs) incorporated in the hack. The hackers needed to clearly articulate how they used the APIs in their submission. The top performers that adhered to these criteria are featured in the video https://youtu.be/HmBfAxbQFOs

 

Come and see how quick and simple it can be to get started using ThingSpace.
