We envision that this will give rise to the most creative and most skillful team to deliver the best mobile application using foursquare API.
Paul Pajo, a Developer Evangelist of SMART Communications said that hackathon assemblies like #4SQHackPH is one good way of giving the developers proper recognition and acknowledgment for the apps they’ve formulated, constructed and created, since most of the time the public forgets all about them. He thinks it is just fair to make people remember that there is always a person working behind those applications they have been using and enjoying.
While Jim Ayson, officer of Strategic Partnerships at SMART Communications pinpointed that the event is also one way of gathering up a whole lot of different and unique ideas when it comes to the web and app development industry. Ayson said that they are very open with crowd-sourcing innovation method and to be able to do that they should accept new and fresh concepts through different developers they meet.
