Some Impressions from the IBM Bluemix Challenge at the DeveloperWeek Hackathon

Last weekend the DeveloperWeek Hackathon took place in San Francisco. It’s a big hackathon with 500 developers and more than 30 different sponsors who run their separate challenges. IBM sponsored the IBM Bluemix Challenge where developers could win prizes with a total value of $6000.

Below are some pictures from the hackathon. I’ll blog separately about the winning projects.

The DeveloperWeek organizers and the sponsors describe the logistics of the hackathon.
