Glue Conference Hackathon in Colorado - Thurs, 5/24/12 - Gregg Alpert
 
Not only was the Gluecon Conference a great place to discuss and learn about converging technology trends but also an opportunity for me to connect with my old hometown of Denver / Boulder.

After a long day of conference sessions a crowd of enthusiastic developers came together to turn their ideas into reality and hack for a total value of $8,000 in great prizes.

Teams hacked well into the early morning. At noon on Thursday, 5/24 teams submitted their ideas. The room filled up as people wanted to hear the teams pitch their concepts. In the end we saw a number of creative uses of APIs from the participating companies, but Tasteful Movies came out on top as the Best in Show App as well as the winner of the best use of the Pearson API. Tasteful movies is a classic play on dinner and a movie where a meal is paired with a movie. Nate Faubion and Jeff Olchovy of Flow used our Pearson Kitchen Manager API and the Netflix API to search ingredients you have in your pantry to determine what dish you could create. From there, they integrated the Netflix API to determine a movie that would complement the meal. They did a great job mashing up these APIs as well as clean demo. For example, their creation of an apple pie led to the recommendation of the American Pie series of movies!

The Winning Team, Nate and Jeff from Flow

I want to give a shout out to Peter Pascale from Pearson for doing a great job putting together a successful and fun hackathon, Eric Norlin for hosting the Glue Conference, the participating API providers, including: Pearson, AT&T, Loggly, Mashery, Cloudspokes and Orbotix and to all the hackers who competed in the hackathon!
