WIP (Wireless Industry Partnership) is hosting a large hackathon at June 24 & 25, and had invited SVEntpreneurs to partner with. SVAndroid will set up a expert panel during the event.
Here is message from CEO of WIP regarding the “Muther”
I want to first thank you for being part of the WIP community and supporting our activities over the last 5 years. Our intent is always to find ways we can support the mobile developer community do what you do better and we think it means making sure you are connected to the right information, resources and people. With that in mind, we knew there was a need to host a new kind of developer event that provided the time and space to create, to learn, to meet and to have the right support, right there. And to have some fun too in WIP style!
