Developer Camp: The World's Best Hackathon
Square, Getaround, Temple Run, OAuth, TestFlight, push.io, and Zūm —each of these companies have foundations at Developer Camp over the past twelve years.
Apple, Oracle, Google, Amazon, Disney, and Facebook have purchased companies following their participation in Developer Camp. You could be next.
It is time to celebrate our inclusive, diverse, and equal-opportunity society with a huge event that gives everyone a chance to succeed.
This event is a combination of community support, cooperation, and an idea contest that lasts 50 hours from opening doors to closing ceremony.
The theme of this special summer event is: Foundational Technologies such as blockchain, AR / VR, and machine learning.
Who: Developers, designers, musicians, artists, entrepreneurs, testers, and makers. The elite corps of Developer Camp Counselors — winners of past events, and distinguished members of our community from the Bay Area stand ready to teach and help.
What: 3-Day hackathon for blockchain, AR / VR, machine learning, and the Web. This collaborative event, featuring superstar hackers and designers to help everyone learn to code, build custom hardware, and generally make ideas come to life. Watch the video.
When: July 19-21, 2019 (Friday evening through Sunday). See our schedule and details.
Where: PayPal Town Hall, 2211 North First Street, San Jose, CA 95131—open all weekend
Why: There is a huge opportunity to bring diversity to the technology industry. Women and girls, men and boys, we all deserve more opportunities to start coding using simple, powerful tools. Watch our Women of iOSDevCamp video.
Also, we offer thousands of dollars in fun prizes like games, and serious stuff like tools. We love to spoil our participants. Everyone walks away with something.
How: Our sponsors offset the cost of attendance, and provide valuable prizes for participants:

This is a place for families and children to collaborate as well.
This event has catalyzed the launch of award winning startups (like Getaround and Yorder), the formation of founder dream teams (Square and TestFlight), and the building of a talented and collaborative community of developers.
Out-of-town guests are welcome to join our inclusive event. Though projects will include both solo and team efforts, we encourage attendees to build teams of diverse expertise — business ideas, marketing, design, testing, coding, and back-end development. All attendees should be prepared to participate in the development of a project during the event. Scholarships are available to encourage diversity, and mentors are available.
“It’s one of the most pure and original hackathons. People come from all around and really just hack on something, meet new people, cherish the relationships that they create here—and go out to create huge companies. The developers we’ve met at Developer Camp are among the best in the world. Some of them have gone on to join our team. We’re excited to be supporting the event again this year... Developer Camp is the best.”
