Tagstand to Sponsor Isobar Create 32, Silicon Valley’s First Ever NFC Hackathon

Isobar “Create 32” Challenges Developers, Designers, Entrepreneurs and Startups to Build Something Epic using NFC Technology

Tagstand, an NFC development and Y-Combinator company, announced today that it is sponsoring “Isobar Create 32,” Silicon Valley’s first hackathon of its kind to explore the possibilities of Near Field Communication (NFC) technology like never before. This pivotal 32-hour event will challenge developers, designers, entrepreneurs and startups to create never-before-seen mobile interactive experiences using NFC. The event will take place on Wednesday, November 30 through Thursday, December 1, 2011 at the San Francisco Design Center, 635 8th Street, San Francisco, and is part of APPNATION III, which brings together thousands of developers, carriers, product/service providers, buyers and investors to discuss the rapidly growing global app ecosystem and the unending stream of emerging tools and technologies.

Isobar Create 32 is an open call to “creatives” and “creators” to define the future of NFC and find greater uses for this exciting technology. Unlike other hackathons, applications can be programmed on any NFC-enabled smartphone platform. NFC experts from eBay-PayPal, Google, Tagstand and other companies will be on hand to demonstrate applications and provide tips on how to program for NFC. After 32 hours of development, a panel of expert judges from eBay-PayPal, Google, Nokia, Samsung, US Venture Partners and more will deliberate and name the top three creations.
Isobar Create 32 is FREE to participants with registration, and all registered developers will receive a complimentary Expo/Keynote pass for APPNATION III. For more information and to register, visit: http://appnationconference.com/appnation3/hackathon.php.
