UPDATE: It was so much fun the first time, we're doing it again! If you are in Melbourne on Saturday March 2nd and looking to hack for #Appfest, sign up here and make sure you are in the running for *another* $500 prize from SAPI. We've even got some handy dandy code samples to help get you started and working with SAPI fast.

See you there!


If you know anything about the team here at SAPI, you would be well aware that we love hackathons. The crazy creativity in action, the relentless pace, the always unexpected drama, and the incredible innovations that occur when people come together under intense pressure... it's all fascinating stuff.

So it should come as no surprise that SAPI have proudly agreed to offer up a $500 prize for the best use of SAPI at the forthcoming Microsoft #Appfest, taking place in Sydney Feb 15-17.
