Got a not-quite-built prototype or idea you know could set the mobile world alight if you could just get the funding to tweak, test and deliver into the hands of consumers? Love playing with HTML 5 or Android? Want to show Google what you can do with the Google+ Hangout API? Want to play with and get in front of one of Britain’s best loved brands?
Cadbury are the official treat provider to London 2012. The weekend hackathon is to create an interesting mobile experience that can be shared as a digital treat during the London 2012 Games.
You have the weekend to work on a mobile hack, app, game, mobile site, AR or API mash-up that brings people closer to the London 2012 Games even if dont have a ticket.
