But, you can win even more! There are many other sponsors, in particular API sponsors that offer prizes if you build an app using their APIs. To help you win even more prizes, we have built plug-ins for various API sponsoring the hackathon:
- AT&T In-App Messaging and Location API (up to $7,000 in prizes)
- CrunchBase API (tickets to TC Disrupt conference in Berlin)

By building your app in Appery.io with some of the APIs that also offer prizes, you increase your chances of winning! Appery.io team will be there during the hackathon to answer any questions you might have.
We have created a special hackathon page where you can sign up for a free Pro plan and watch a recording of a special webinar, prepared just for the hack.
Good luck and hope to see you there!
Tomorrow and Friday I will be at API Strategy and Practice conference in New York City. I’ll be talking about Tiggzi Platform, APIs and API plug-ins. I will be using ESPN API (Mashery) to show how fast you can build a mobile app in the cloud.
Tiggzi isn’t just a mobile app builder. As a mobile app platform, it also provides a growing list of back-end services (like a database service) for seamless integration into the apps. Just us for this hands-on demo and overview of the currently available back-end services and the road map for the future. There will be plenty of time set aside at the end for Q&A.
