A Hackathon for the Future of Small Business

By now, I hope you’re all aware of the new contest we recently kicked off for devs who publish an app on the QuickBooks Apps store by August 15. Devs who enter the Small Business App Showdown will get a chance to win a finalist spot at QuickBooks Connect and compete for an amazing $100k Grand Prize!

But if you’ve been to QuickBooks Connect in previous years, you might be wondering “What about the hackathon? Are you still having one at QuickBooks Connect?”  The answer to that is a resounding YES!

This year, the hackathon is returning to the San Jose Convention Center on Oct 22-23 (the weekend before the main conference). The theme of the hack is small business tech, challenging devs to explore how small businesses, non-profits, and accountants use (or should use) new tech like wearables, smart devices, and other open platforms to improve how they run their businesses.

Have we piqued your interest? We’ll be sharing more details like challenge tracks, prizes, and requirements in the coming months. In the meantime, when you register for QuickBooks Connect don’t forget to also select the hackathon if you want to innovate with fellow developers to make a difference in the lives of small businesses worldwide!

We’re here to help — got questions, ideas, comments?  Leave them below! And stay tuned!
