Hackathons always produce new apps, but how about one that also encourages updating what you already have? That's the case with The Muther of all hackathons, in which new and enhanced apps are both eligible for some great prizes. The Wireless Industry Partnership has scheduled more than 24 hours during which it hopes developers produce 100 new or enhanced apps. Lofty, yes, but we all know what a group of passionate developers can make with the right motivation. And you can go to Silicon Valley June 24 and 25 to make it happen.
