New York City BlackBerry Developers Group hosting hackathon on October 19th

If you're interested in developing for BlackBerry 10 and live near New York City, on Friday October 19th to Saturday October 20th the New York City BlackBerry Developers Group will be hosting a hackathon.

Starting at 6:30 PM on Friday and running through to 5:30 PM on Saturday night, local NYC developers are invited to come and develop applications and games using the best mobile tools available. This event will be super exciting. I’d like to personally challenge everyone to come out, create a stellar app and get it ready for submission to the BlackBerry App World™ storefront.

To make it all that much more exciting, the first 3 teams/individuals that create an app and get it ready for submission to BlackBerry App World in the time allotted will receive a BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha Device. If you're looking to attend, you can get yourself registered via the link below.
