Following an all night hack, a spirited game of 2 am laser tag, a voting finale in speed-geek format (think speed dating for hackers), and with the support and advice of over 15 developer evangelists from some of the leading API providers, the winners of ProgrammableWeb’s first APIcon hackathon were announced yesterday at APIcon. Winners included two security camera apps, an automated travel expenditure app for the connected car, and a machine language chat support client. Teams were given one main criteria (to use as many of the sponsored APIs as possible) and encouraged to unleash their creativity.
