Ok sports fans, it's gametime! Whether you play intramural dodgeball or you root for Team Liquid & Cloud9 in LoL — you and your team are a community.
Run with the ball and create new ways and apps to bring players, teams, and fans closer together. And when we say sports, we mean all sports. If you've got an idea for the US Curling Team or your WoW Guild, we want to see it.
What to build:
A web/mobile app or hardware that brings teams & fans closer together.
Can I submit something I've already built?
Sure, but you must add something new for this hackathon.
Does it have to work IRL?
YES! Mockups and slideshows are boring. Show us something we can use. It doesn't have to be in the app store or open source, but we do have to be able to test it.
What's in it for me?
Our sponsor Twitter has generously donated an Apple Watch Sport, 16GB iPad Mini 3 &
Beats Solo 2 Wired On-Ear Headphones and there are also a ton of prizes from us, MLH and Digital Ocean.
I want to participate, but I don't know where / how to start. Halp!
No problemo. We've compiled a list of resources, APIs, libraries, and ideas just for you.
