SP_NYCHack_150x150We’re proud to be a sponsor at Space Apps Challenge NYC but we’re even more excited to be giving away nearly $4,000.00 in cash and prizes to hackers who incorporate one or more of our APIs at the hackathon! Over 200 developers in person (and hundreds more online internationally) are scheduled to participate and collaborate to tackle challenges relevant to improving life on earth. How awesome is that?

The prizes in the SparkPost Space Apps Challenge:

  • Anyone who uses our API in their app will get a $10 gift certificate to SparkFun
  • The team with the most creative use of our APIs will be featured on SparkPost.com’s blog and socially (where your colleagues will be green with envy and shower you with accolades).

To help you, here are some example use-cases for incorporating SparkPost’s powerful email delivery APIs into your app and you can also download to bring with you.

We’re proud to be a sponsor at Launch Hackathon but we’re even more excited to be giving away $10,000 in cash and prizes to the SparkPost Challenge hackathon winner!

The prize:

  • $3,000 cash
  • 1 year SparkPost Gold ($6,900 value)

The goal is simple: come up with the best app submission incorporating one of our APIs at the hackathon.

To make the deal even sweeter, we’re partnering with FullContact who will be adding an additional $2,500 cash on top of the $10,000 in cash and prizes if the winner incorporates both FullContact and SparkPost APIs into their winning app.
