Developers: Check Out the AT&T Hackathon in Toronto During the NxNE Music Festival

Comment

RIM may or may not be sponsoring NxNE but they’ll be sponsors of the AT&T Mobile App Hackathon. The event is produced by the AT&T Developer Program and Apigee and it’s designed for attendees (technical and non-technical), to build apps and compete for prizes. The hackathon is open to any platform or programming language. If your coding skills are a little rusty, there will be live developer support from local senior developers as well as from AT&T, Sencha, and Apigee to help you code faster and more effectively.

NXNE 2011: Win a Trip to Osheaga in Montreal with BlackBerry

Comment

blackberry osheaga at nxne

This is probably one of the most confusing parties you’ll go to at NXNE, but it’s still pretty cool. BlackBerry (RIM), will be at the NXNE festival hosting a party where they’ll be giving away tickets to another, completely separate festival. If I were NXNE, I’d be happy to have RIM sponsoring parties but it would also hurt my feelers to know they’re promoting someone else’s festival at the same time. So if you’re in Toronto, head over to the BlackBerry presents: Osheaga 2011 party at The Garrison. Here are the details:

When: Friday, June 17th. Doors open 8PM and show at 9PM.
Where: The Garrison. 1197 Dundas St. W.
Why: You could win free tickets to Osheaga 2011 and there’s some other bands we’ve never heard of.

There’s also a surprise guest. Please, please, please, please, please don’t let it be Will.i.am. PLEASE!

NXNE is currently going down and there’s a BlackBerry and iPhone app available to keep track of the festival. For the Americans out there, NXNE is the Canadian version of SXSW. It’s a lot smaller than the American SXSW but it’s gaining more and more momentum over the years. Also, it’s a great opportunity to check out some great Canadian bands like Fucked Up. With the NXNE 2011 BlackBerry app, you can get listings and events based on categories such as Music, Interactive and Film. You can also check live Tweets that mention #nxne and customize your schedule. The app was developed by the stealthy developers over at The Mobile Cartel, who seem to be working on some cool stuff under the radar.

To download the NXNE 2011 app, simply point your BlackBerry browser to nxne.com/apps/bb/.
