Tropo is partnering with the LA .NET Developers Group and Outlook Amusements to sponsor this weekend’s LA (Burbank) Hackathon at Outlook Amusements on Saturday, December 10, 2011 from 9:00 AM to 6:30 PM (PT).
Here’s the address:
2900 W. Alameda Ave
Burbank, CA 91505
The theme of the LA Hackathon is “Build Voice/SMS apps for Holidays”! Here are a few ideas to get you thinking:
- Santa Caller (similar to http://santacall.us) – Build a website that allows a parent to schedule a call to their kids from Santa. Have Santa ask the kid what they would like for Christmas and then email the parents their kid’s recorded message and/or transcribe the message for the email.
- Santa Tag (similar to http://www.bloggingbistro.com/jc-penney-comes-up-with-a-new-use-for-qr-codes-video/) – Build a website that calls someone to record a message then associates the message with a QR code that plays when scanned.
- Holiday Greetings Hotline – Build a holiday greetings hot line where user can leave a voice message that will be transcribed into text and posted to “Holiday Greetings” twitter account.
