Open Hack events have become something of a phenomenon, with ten events under our Yahoo! belt so far. From London, to Taipei, Bangalore to Sao Paulo and of course the recent event in New York City. We are very excited to announce that for the first time, Open Hack is coming to Southeast Asia (SEA), to the city of Jakarta in Indonesia. The event will take place from over the weekend of the 21-22 November 2009.
We are opening up this event to developers across the whole region. We are also currently running developer competitions in The Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia and Singapore to identify top developers who we will fly to the Jakarta event. If you are in one of those countries, visit our competition website to find out more about the competition near you.
We are planning on some great talks on the first day around our newest technologies, including YQL, Yahoo! Application Platform, Blueprint and our Geo Technologies. Then its down to some serious hacking so you can show us what you can build in 24 hours using our APIs and with anything else you like. Of course there will be some fun and games during the two days, and we will keep you fed and hydrated throughout. Our Open Hacks days have got progressively better each time we do them, so the expectations for the SEA event are high, and we are planning a truly stand out event.
The venue only has space for 200 hackers, so the quicker you register, the more likely you are to be invited to the event. We'll confirm your attendance within a week of you registering.
So come on, sign up and be a part of the first ever Yahoo! Southeast Asian Open Hack event.
