Let's hack on connected cars! Join Hackbright Academy and Smartcar for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build on the Smartcar API and reimagine the future of mobility by building apps for cars!
Smartcar and Hackbright Academy
Smartcar and Hackbright are teaming up to give hackers the opportunity to build apps for connected cars on September 22-23, 2018. We’re going to have a Tesla Model S so that hackers can test their apps and API requests on a real vehicle!
Smartcar is the connected car API for developers that allows mobile and web apps to communicate with connected vehicles. In a singular engineering effort, developers can access Smartcar-supported brands, and grow their coverage automatically, without any extra engineering effort. Our platform is designed to be integrated with ease. We have front-end and back-end SDKs and client libraries to accelerate your integration process in conjunction with live customer support.
Anyone who wants to learn to build apps on Smartcar's API, gain more hacking experience, or just wants to have some fun! All developers, entrepreneurs, and designers welcome. If you are new to hackathons - don't stress. The Smartcar and Hackbright teams will be there to guide you through the day.
Minimum requirements: Should know how to make an API call; 1-year of coding experience (bootcamp qualifies).
Teams: Must be in teams of 5 people or fewer.
We are excited to start building connected car applications with you. See you there!
