To continue the momentum from our recent Ning Apps launch -- our Apps program based on OpenSocial -- we're excited to announce that we'll be holding a special developer event called the Ning Appathon at our offices in Palo Alto, CA on Thursday, November 5th from 6pm-10pm.
The event will include:
- An overview of Ning Apps and our OpenSocial implementation
- Presentations from existing Ning Apps developers
- A chance to meet members of the Ning Engineering and Developer Advocacy teams
- Free pizza and beer :)
Most importantly, we'll be announcing the start of a week-long app development competition which will include awards for new applications in addition to ported applications. Prizes and details will be revealed at the event.
All attendees will receive a complimentary Ning hoodie, so be sure to tell us your shirt size when RSVPing. You can attend solo or bring one colleague, we only ask that you RSVP by 9pm PST on Thursday, October 29th through our website, http://developer.ning.com/appathon. All attendees must be at least 21 years of age.
