We’re hacking the Health Graph, and you’re invited!Posted: February 21, 2012
Our team at RunKeeper is very excited to see all the wonderful things that developers are doing with the Health Graph! We want to help you make 2012 the year that you blow the doors off innovative Health Graph powered apps, services, and devices.
To that end, we’re sponsoring and participating in several hackathon and hands-on style, code-level events throughout the year. And you’re invited!
First up is a U.S. bi-coastal doozy: We’ll be onsite speaking about and helping developers use the Health Graph at AngelHack, the nationwide hackathon competition, March 3rd-5th. We’ll have people in both locations, San Francisco and Boston, to help you get up to speed and hack cool things together using the treasure trove of health and fitness data available from the Health Graph.
If you’re from the New York City area, we’ve got you covered too: We’re chartering a bus to drive developers up from NYC to participate in Boston, so NY hackers, come on up!
We’re so excited to see what you can do with the API, in fact, that we’re going to sweeten the usual pot of AngelHack prizes by offering a prize specifically for the best use of the Health Graph API: $500 USD plus promotion by us of your app, once it’s completed and deployed into the RunKeeper app directory, to our entire 8 million registered (and growing) users. We’ll feature you in a Health Graph blog partner profile and get out the word via our Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ channels.
We are also proud to sponsor and participate in the Health Hack Day hackathon weekend scheduled for May 18-20 in Stockholm, Sweden. We’ll be there speaking about the Health Graph and meeting developers from all over Europe interested in developing health and fitness related applications.
