free devlab

From: gary hasty 
FYI, if anyone's thinking about coming down for the AT&T hackathon this
weekend we're also having a devlab session during the day at the foundry:

*Free one-day workshop on the AT&T Speech, In-App Messaging, Advertising
APIs, and Appcelerator*

Are you a *mobile application developer* with an interest in adding *voice
commands*or text-to-voice translation to your app?  Or sending *text
messages* from inside your application?  Or earning *advertising revenues*?
Join the AT&T Developer Program for a one-day workshop on the *AT&T Speech,*
 *In-App Messaging* (including SMS and MMS)*,*and* Advertising APIs*.  This
will be a day of learning and hands-on coding ("lab time").  Bring your
laptops (PC or Mac) and leave with our APIs working from your own AT&T
Developer Program account. The event will close with a session by Pratik
Patel, CTO of Triplingo and evangelist for Appcelerator, on how to leverage
Appcelerator to complete your app.

The workshop will be taught by AT&T and Appcelerator subject matter
experts, and AT&T Developer Program staff.  This also is a great
opportunity to network with AT&T and your fellow mobile developers. We will
be using Postman and cURL for the lab exercises.

The event is free and lunch is provided.  If you are an app developer
working independently or with a company planning or already producing
mobile applications then this is the event for you. Space is limited so
register now.

Find out how carrier APIs from the AT&T Developer Program can benefit you
and your app strategy. *We look forward to meeting you!*

We currently use Twillio and Clickatel as well as a few hardware gateways for SMS and IVR, but the more options the better. Any chance you'll be doing this again soon?

=============================================================== From: Lee Walker ------------------------------------------------------ You really need to read the term & conditions of this "hackathon". AT&T own all you do, you get nothing if they decide to use it. They are using you for free labor and ideas. Company sponsored "hackathons" are just a cheap trick to get you all to work for free. Stick to the community events, not these Company sponsored ones. On Tue, Apr 8, 2014 at 10:51 AM, gary hasty wrote= : e ur gfor more information about these SDKs or r we ns e on o s events y.

=============================================================== From: gary hasty ------------------------------------------------------ this was about the devlab seminar...not the hackathon...I can also tell you I've seen nothing "stolen" from these over the past few years but we have used some of them to find some amazing talent to hire.

=============================================================== From: Mike Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ Kudos for the "curl" examples on the developer pages. It makes actual languages used and coding style irrelevant.

=============================================================== From: Mike Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ I'll contend that: If you have little to loose.. and use these to learn and network, these are great events. Don't take your #1 idea to a hackathon.. Take #4... as a learning experience, meet other people.

=============================================================== From: Lynn Dixon ------------------------------------------------------ This is an important thing to remember. "Crackers" don't typically go to these types of events. People usually go to meet like minded folk, share ideas, and to find themselves better jobs. I would go to it to show off what I can do, in hopes of impressing someone enough to make them recruit me. Having the sponsor "steal my code" would probably be the least of my concerns.
