LA .NET Hackathon 2011

Posted on December 5, 2011 by Team Tropo

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:
Outlook Amusements
2900 W. Alameda Ave
suite 400
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.

Even though this event is sponsored by the .NET Developers Group, we will be supporting all development languages and will have Tropo expertise onsite in .NET, PHP, Ruby/Rails, and Javascript, and Node.JS!
