SAPI Hackathon 2011 (Melbourne)

On 21 November, 2011 by bunny

Hi guys!

Pork ‘n’ Bunny attended the Sensis SAPI Hackathon during the weekend.

The competition requires you to make an Android or iOS app using the Sensis API. 혻You choose a category (we got Transport) and hack away for 2 days for a cash prize of $10,000!

We made an app called ‘Friend Compass’ where you and your friend meet halfway at a local business to meet up! 혻It was a stressful 2 days but we made it through and won the ‘People’s Choice Award’ instead which we were very happy about.
