We are holding our next global Ticketmaster Hackathon, and this time we’re hitting up the capital of the emerald isle, Dublin. The Ticketmaster team are inviting all the creative techie heads out there to come and join us!
What’s a Hackathon we hear you ask? Basically it’s a hands-on workshop for API/mobile developers, architects and API enthusiasts. The theme of our Hackathon is ‘event discovery’ – we want you to come down to use our APIs and mash them up with other APIs to create meaningful and awesome experiences for fans. Whether you’re a developer, interested in Ticketmaster tech, or fancy winning a drone here are five reasons you should come along.
#5 Meet the team
This will be an opportunity to get up close and personal with the Ticketmaster team who are opening up the platform, building APIs and shipping products. The best innovations happen when people connect, and Hackathon’s are the perfect setting for this.
#4 Join the team
It takes a special kind of talent to spend their Saturday with a bunch of strangers talking APIs and product innovation – and that’s just the kind of talent we’re always on the lookout for to come and join the team.
#3 Get inspired
Serendipitous “eureka” moments are just a conversation or a keystroke away at Hackathon – you’ll find inspiration in the demos others give and in the cross-functional collaboration throughout the day. This is the perfect setting for the imagination to run wild!
#2 Give feedback
We focus heavily on the developer experience – you are the customer and we are here to listen to you. We want your feedback. We want your input. The feedback we receive helps us to build better APIs and a better DX.
#1 Have fun!
The best reason to join us! We’re a fun loving bunch who enjoy to connect with others. The Hackathon will be totally laid-back – with fun as much of a priority as coding and APIs! We’ll provide the sustenance to keep you going, all you need to do is bring your jolly self along and have a great time.
