Mobile Dev Day by Parse + Facebook Videos & Hackathon Winners

Thank you to the over 350 attendees to Mobile Developer Day, Presented by Parse + Facebook, for joining us last week at Facebook Headquarters for the event! We're happy to announce that the videos are now available below and at the Facebook Developers YouTube page.

The Parse and Facebook teams and speakers loved meeting current – and future – Parse and Facebook developers and we hope that everyone who came walked away with a greater understanding of how to build and grow their apps with the two platforms. After a morning of informative talks from Jocelyn Goldfein, Jason Russell, Christine Abernathy, Bear Douglas, Stephanie Shum, and Eddie O'Neil, attendees participated in a 4 hour hackathon that produced 32 awesome projects. We loved them all, but had to pick just 4 to win the day's prizes. The winners, who received free Parse Pro and Facebook Mobile App Ads credits at each level as well as iPad minis for the first place team members, were:

  • Eat@ developed by Matthew Kuhlke, Chris Kung, and Ben Kim
  • Opine developed by Dan Treiman, Peace Asukwo, Anas Alamoudi, Jay Chulani, and Ben Morrow
  • Hive Here developed by Nik Kalyani, S. Sriram, Yahui Jin, and Prashant Khanduri
  • Pictogram developed by Seth Piezas

If you weren't able to join us for Mobile Developer Day, we hope that some of you will be able to attend our upcoming December Parse Meetups in London, San Francisco, and Paris, or at one of our many events coming up in 2014. You can also see pictures from the events here and view the full videos from the day below.
