Mondo Hackathon II
44 Paul St
The Mondo API is out of this world. We’ve got a huge amount of information available about everything that happens to your account, delivered in JSON over either a lovingly crafted REST API or web hooks pushed to you in real-time..We’re excited to see what you’ll build with it, from realtime dashboards, to intelligent apps, to physical internet-connected devices like our 3D printed fuel gauge for your bank account.This is the bank API you’ve been waiting for. At the beginning of the hackathon we will give each team access to: Our prototype mobile application (iOS only for now) A client id and secret to access our API Then you get to build cool things for two days :D Our engineering team will be around to help with any issues you might run into.What kinds of things can I build?Some examples to get your creative juices flowing: An integration that checks you into Foursquare every time you pay somewhere with a card Match up parsed email receipts via Context.io with bank transactions and automatically attach amazon receipts and images to your transactions in your banking app A financial gamification app that observes my transactions and gives me points for streaks and exploring new locations See what people built during our first HackatonWho can participate?Anyone who ever wished their bank had an API!How are teams formed? Can I work alone?We will ask people with ideas to pitch them to the participants. After the pitches, people form into teams organically. If you'd rather work alone, we can try to accommodate that.What capabilities does your API have?The API is documented here. You can list transactions, create pretty feed items that are visible in the app's main view, and receive web hooks when a transaction is made.Is this an overnight thing? When do I go home?The hackathon kicks off 10am on Saturday and goes on until around 5 or 6pm. We will reconvene at 10am on Sunday and work until the final presentations at 4pm.Are there any prizes?Fame and glory! :) This is the first hackathon we're running on the first version of our soon-to-be legendary API.You will also receive one of the first Mondo cards once they come off the press, and be one of the first developers to play with the API. Who knows, maybe you'll start a whole new business or side project off the back of our API once we launch. We also encourage you to write and blog about your experiences on the internet if you enjoy that kind of thing ;-)Is food and drink provided?Absolutely! We will probably get pizza, snacks, non-alcoholic beverages and beers from our namesake MONDO brewery.I have further questions…Great! Please don't hesitate to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or if you have an idea you'd like to discuss.
