Box Hack Day
Code, Compete, and Build Enterprise Applications
September 6, 2016 | Moscone West | San Francisco Sponsored by Box and Amazon Web Services #boxhackday
Build the next big enterprise app and bring it to market
Box is an enterprise content management platform that helps more than 41 million users and 62,000 businesses around the world store, manage and share files. Developers use Box Platform to bring Box's content services to their own apps or use our APIs to build integrations and connect their apps to Box.
Whether you want to add Box functionality to your current project, or build something totally new, Box Hack Day will provide the tools and expertise you need.
What is Box Hack Day?
Bring your current projects, your team, and your ideas to the Box Hack Day or come alone to learn, code, and compete with experts and enterprise developers in the tech capital of the world! As a part of BoxDev 2016, and sponsored by Box and Amazon Web Services, Box Hack Day is an event for developers to learn the Box APIs, collaborate with experts, and build prototypes that could win you prizes. Anyone who registers for Box Hack Day also receives a complimentary pass to BoxDev 2016. Participants will also have the opportunity to attend an AWS Zombie Microservices Workshop to learn more about building microservices with Lambda and API Gateway.
The top five teams from Round One will be given passes to the BoxDev Hack Lounge to continue working on their projects in preparation for Round Two judging on Wednesday, and the Grand Prize winner will be announced during the BoxWorks Keynote on Thursday.
