On Monday September 30th, from 5:30 PM to 10:30 PM at .conf2013 in Las Vegas, NV, we're hosting a hackathon for developers to get together and build applications that make it easier and more effective to gain insights from machine data with Splunk. Brought to you by Splunk>4Good, the hackathon will take place in the Cosmopolitan hotel after the day's sessions have wrapped up. Splunkers will be on hand to help with any level of technical question and provide support.
Participants can decide to participate as an individual or join a team. Prizes will be awarded for "Best Application" and "Best Application for Social Impact" by a panel of judges at the conclusion of the hackathon on Wednesday night. For the Official Rules, see here. Please ensure that your company policies allow you to participate.
Developers interested in building apps to solve challenging data problems with Splunk are welcome. While the hackathon builds on a ton of great session content at .conf2013, you don't have to be a registered for the conference to take part. Please RSVP for the hackathon, we'd love for you to join us!
