Calling all developers to the 2016 Money20/20 Hackathon!
What could you do in 24 hours to enhance the consumer purchasing experience? Worldpay is proud to return as a sponsor for the third annual Money20/20 Hackathon – the world’s largest fintech dedicated hackathon on Oct. 22-23 at The Venetian, Las Vegas – and we’re looking for your ideas and innovations. We’re challenging competitors to use our new omni-channel payments platform to create an innovative app or solution that helps merchants elevate the buying experience – whether in-store or online.
This year’s competitors will have four ways to quickly and simply integrate payments with Worldpay:
- Our award-winning REST APIs
- New language-agnostic Windows SDK
- New iOS SDK that allows iPhone and iPad developers to work natively in the iOS language, Objectve-C
- New Android SDK for developers looking to work in Java
Our own VP of Innovation & Design Joe Kleinwaechter will be attending this year’s hackathon. “Supporting the next generation of payments disruptors has always been at the core of our values as a business, and the Hackathon is a unique opportunity for developers from all over the world to experience firsthand the breadth, depth and simplicity of our new single integration technology,” he said in anticipation of the event.
All that hard work won’t go unrecognized. Worldpay will be awarding each member of the winning team a $500 gift card, Oculus Rift + ASUS Oculus Ready G20CB-WS71 Desktop PC Bundle, and an Everyday Backpack 30L, a Kickstarter-based gear bag perfect for carrying the Oculus Rift bundle. Money20/20 will also be awarding five $20,000 prizes and five $5,000 prizes to ten teams, with the overall winning team earning the chance to present their solution as part of the Money20/20 StartupPitch180 program.
