Build Your Startup at AngelHack 2.0 this Weekend

One year ago Greg Gopman moved to San Francisco by way of Miami with a new concept for hackathons where angel investors and accelerator programs were directly involved. AngelHack was born and launched with a bang. This weekend kicks off the Spring 2012 AngelHack 2.0 in both Boston and San Francisco, and we’re stoked to join the teams in both cities.

Registration is currently full, but you can still sign up for the waitlist. If you plan on attending, make sure you reach out to Carter Rabasa and Frank Denbow who will be helping out in San Francisco and Boston respectively.

Two Cities Coast to Coast and A Bus Full of Hackers

AngelHack is rocking the east coast and west coast simultaneously, with the San Francisco event at Adobe’s office and the Boston event set to take place in the Cambridge Innovation Center. They expect an incredible crowd with over 700 developers to attend, including over 100 students from MIT, Harvard, Stanford, Penn and BU.

It doesn’t stop there, Context.IO filled a bus full of developers for a road trip from Montreal to Boston. Get ready to see what the Montreal startup scene brings to the hackathon table!

Seriously Cool APIs and Top Awards

There is $50,000 in prizes up for grabs, including airfare and tickets to Startup Workaway. Use one or more of the awesome APIs on the list to grab even more prizes. Using the Twilio API you can score a Kindle Fire, $133.70 in Twilio credit and Twilio swag. Plus, the top 10 teams get to pitch their startup to a panel of judges, headed up by AngelList’s Naval Ravikant.

If you need a little direction, startup incubator, Tech Stars, will be on call to mentor the Boston event and Ben Parr formerly of Mashable will be available in SF.

If you have any questions about the event, visit the AngelHack website or tweet at@angelhack. Can’t wait to see what you build.

    We also used Twilio API for our project at HTML5 WebGL Hackathon this weekend – March 2-4, 2012.

    Casey Rodamor came up with this brilliant idea with Twilio API. We wanted to do something different. Ours were the most funny and artistic one that we are invited to present our work at the creators project event at Fort Mason on March 17-18. Description below.

    Partyline, Honorable Mention

    Description: Partyline materializes the most private of our
    communication methods—our phone lines—into a sound collage. It consists
    of two parts – a Voyeur, which dials participants at random and records
    their input, as well as a Sequencer, which is an interactive view into
    voices, both of humans and machines, going on at the time.
