Be part of history: The Inaugural SDL Hackathon!

Posted on Friday, September 08, 2017 by Ford Partner Relations

Are you exploring the incredible potential of IoT, mobile and digital streaming tech? Do you have the next great idea for connected-car content? Are you part of our community of SDL developers?

It’s time to be a part of history.

Ford, and the founding members of the SmartDeviceLink Consortium (SDL), present the inaugural SDL Developer Conference at Mobile World Congress Americas. The most innovative connected-car apps will compete in the first all-SDL hackathon, with over $5,000 in cash and prizes—and major SDL partners will have resources on hand to guide, support and cheer you on.

Top app developers, major automotive OEMs and connected-car suppliers will be there with FordDev to show off the cutting edge of SDL hardware, software, developer tools and tech.

The hack kicks off Monday at 10:00 PT, with master classes to help you get your app rolling on SDL; you cross the finish line at 6:30 am Tuesday. Whether or not you end up in the winner’s circle, you get a complimentary pass to Tuesday’s SDL Conference.

That’s where FordDev, Magellan and other SDLC members will present the exciting potential (and reality) of cars by Toyota, Mazda, Suzuki, Subaru, Peugeot, and Citroen joining the millions of Ford vehicles already on the road supporting the SDL connectivity platform.

It’s time to find out what your connected-car app idea can do with the power of native vehicle data. Register for the inaugural SDL Developer Hackathon!
