HackMIT 2016 is coming. Hackathons offer the opportunity to meet many new people and learn tons of new things in a short period of time. Participation in initiatives like these can inspire us for a long time. So, when you have an opportunity to join a hackathon, I recommend that you do it without any considerations. Don’t think about your team or worry about your knowledge, just jump into the adventure – you will figure it out on site.
But, to develop fast and without restrictions, we need a suite of components with rich functionality. This is where NativeScript UI fits in. It offers a 30 day trial where you have access to all of the functionality that the controls provide. The teams which win the Progress’ contest will get free licenses for one year.
Hybrid apps are still an option for mobile development and this is where the Telerik Platform can also assist. It offers an IDE, source control, UI suite of controls and online simulators. It also offers a 30 day trial if you want to give it a test drive.
All of these products are part of the Progress’ portfolio. If you’re at HackMIT and need access to any of our other products leave a comment and we will try to provide them as well.
At HackMIT, Progress’ great products come with great mentors. They will be there to help you with guidelines related to the products themselves but also with advice on how to organize your team and work. Eduardo and I will be more than happy to work with all of you.
The main reason to use the Progress’ products is because they are great. But the secondary one is that you will be included in our contest with the opportunity to win a great prize.
Besides technology, contests and prizes, hackathons offer everyone who participates the chance to have fun and learn something new. Join in the conversation. The NativeScript community created a dedicated Slack channel for HackMIT. Get an invitation from here and join the hackathon channel.
Let’s meet there and have fun.
