About our APIs

Some APIs are fun to explore. Some help you create incredible things. Some even help you solve the toughest information challenges. We.re collaborating with developers like you to chart the direction of our upcoming releases to give the dev community APIs that can quickly and easily be consumed . leaving you to your imagination to build any app you want.

Can.t wait to get started? Check out our growing list of APIs today and start hacking.

Schedule

Rules

Rules for our hackathons are pretty simple. At the IDOL OnDemand Hackathon we have two sets of rules for two different challenges.

Fresh Code

Build something this weekend with fresh code and win the Grand Prize!

  • Fresh Code

    We all start coding at the same time. This is done to keep things fair. Please don.t come in and build on top of previous projects if you want to win. It.s cool to work on designs beforehand, digital mockups, open source frameworks, and anything else available to everyone, but try to keep things within just limits.
  • Code Review

    Winning teams will be subject to a code-review at some point following the event or immediately before winning.
  • Ownership and IP

    Teams have full ownership of everything they build at our events and are free to do with it as they wish.
  • Team Size

    Teams of up to 5 humans are allowed. You can also add 1 cyborg, Furby, drone, or Sphero.
  • Submissions

    Each hackathon has it.s individual hackathon.io page, which projects should be submitted on. Submission time is normally 1pm Sunday unless stated otherwise.
  • DEMO your Hack

    You must demo your hack in order to present. No slide-decks or power-points will be allowed. Don.t be scared if you didn.t finish. it.s okay long as you tried your best.
  • Have fun

    It.s a hackathon! Use whatever languages or hacks you have in your arsenal. Show us hardware. Show us new concepts. Show us anything you.d like.

Be as creative as you want to be and build on top of any platform and show us what you got. Winner(s) of this challenge will be handsomely rewarded!
