Hacking for Good? Hacking for Innovation? The TV Hackfest is about:
"Building Innovation in Multiplatform TV Content Development."
...that's what a Hackfest is all about. Hackfest.tv will include 100+ developers who will be given the simple topic of hacking TV to make it cooler!
Creatives, developers, coders, content, tv production, and technology get together, get creative, and build cool stuff
Why hack TV? Because according to Forbes, there's half a trillion dollars up for grabs globally in TV ad spend and Pay TV revenue as the Internet starts to collide with traditional TV.
We will give attendees APIs, SDKs and data and challenge them to code/design/engineer/make and break for this 2 day event, building their own prototype solutions or ideas. The event will be written up by Appmarket.tv - and the winners getting a follow up PR to promote them, and announced on the Apps World blog to their global show attendees. Its a great way to showcase your talent, establish yourself as a leader in the TV tech space, and build new relationships at the forefront of multi-platform TV content development.
