Hackdays are awesome gatherings of hackers/developers who work either in a team or alone to build applications with publicably available APIs. We started with our first hackathon in Toronto which brought together 40 developers to build some pretty neat applications using a select number of APIs.

We had such a great time that we rolled out HackDays across Canada. HackDays would not be possible with out the support we received and continue to receive from the Yellow Pages whom we thank from the bottom of our heart!

Our first destination outside of Toronto was Montreal and Waterloo. hackMTL and HackWaterloo were a blast and the winners are enjoying their awesome prizes! In 2011 we held HackOTT in Ottawa and HackWaterloo in Waterloo and finally HackVAN. This year's planning includes a hackathon in pretty much all the cities we can get to including: Vancouver, Montreal, Waterloo, Regina, Calgary, Edmonton and more. We are looking at reaching out to each developer community and helping organize the next hackathons!

Our second HackTO will be held in Toronto on Saturday April 14, 2012 from 9 AM to 8 PM.

HackTO is going to be an awesome gathering of the very best of Toronto's technology hackers and developers, coming together for one day of hacking - and you probably don't want to miss this hacking event! Space is limited as always. All our hacking events sell out so if you are interested in attending: please sign up now to guarantee your spot (and make everyone's life easier!).

For HackMTL and HackOTT, we rounded up various public APIs from local tech startups and have made them available to local developers. We will be doing the same for HackTO. Each API will be supported by someone totally familiar with the API (so you won't be wasting time trying to find answers to your questions) and we will provide a great hacking environment with caffeeine, pizza, snacks and prizes (and glory)! Working in teams or solo--and with expert guidance from our API sponsors--developers compete to create the coolest application using one or more of the available APIs. And just to make things interesting, this is all done in a few hours!

Developers: for the low price of $10 you can spend a day with expert guidance, make new friends and connections, compete for awesome prizes, and build tools with some of the coolest platforms around.

If you're with a technology company that you think ought to be involved, or if you have any questions, drop us an email would love to hear from you.

BTW this is an all-day event; breakfast, lunch and snacks provided! Our schedule will look something like this: 

  • 9:00 – Breakfast and introductions
  • 9:30 – API presentation: learn about the APIs available
  • 10:15 – Open Planning: come up with hacking idea and build a team
  • 10:30 – Hacking setup and start
  • Noon – Lunch
  • 1:00 – Hacking
  • 5:00 – Application presentation – 5 minutes for each presenter!
