It was a long and exciting 24 hours for those who participated in ACTIVE Network’s first public HACKATHON. College students, professional designers, and developers born to code brought forth their best efforts and worked tirelessly to “hack” our existing API’s in a creative attempt to develop new ways to create access to activities everywhere.
After a sleepless 24 hours, the hacking officially came to a halt at noon on Sunday. Participants presented their final products to our impressive panel of judges (who, by the way, were on-site to coach and support ideation throughout the night)!
Ladies and Gentleman, girls and boys – come one, come all! Be amazed, be enchanted, be mystified, be amused…
ACTIVE is taking center ring at Mashery’s Circus Mashimus lounge at the SXSW Interactive Festival to demo our APIs and provide a sneak peek at the new ACTIVE.com.
We’re also showcasing what other hackers have built by integrating our Activity Search, Campgrounds, and Golf Tee Times API, giving away sweet swag and hosting POWER UP! Morning Runs.
Our API program allows developers direct access to one of the most comprehensive databases of global events and activities like summer camps, 5k’s, golf tee times, campground reservations and classes.
