 BBM Hackathon Events

I was impressed by the first BBM Apps Hackathon RIM threw in NYC and they promised to have more. @AlexKinsella pointed out that they have followed up on that promise with the announcement of NINE new Hackathons in the US, Canada, and around the world. Here is a list of the events:

  • Waterloo September 28-29, 2011
  • Toronto October 6-7, 2011
  • Chicago Dates and details coming soon
  • San Francisco Dates and details coming soon
  • Jakarta Dates and details coming soon
  • Boston Dates and details coming soon
  • Mexico City Dates and details coming soon
  • London UK Dates and details coming soon
  • Amsterdam Dates and details coming soon

The next event is in Waterloo and is open to residents of Canada and the US. RIM is throwing a contest for the Waterloo event offering up 30 chances (+10 possible extra wildcard entries) that you have to enter to come to the event. Winners will also get a one night stay in a standard room on September 28th, 2011 at the Destination Inn in Waterloo and a BlackBerry gift pack. They will also be feeding the attendees with a approximate value of $1,000 for each prize.
