Building a Winning Hackathon Team
Fresh from a win, the Grand Prize winner of the 2016 AT&T Developer Summit Hackathon, Team KineticCare offers their insight into what it takes to build a winning hackathon team. The six members of the team, James Cuomo, Joe Healy, Brian Kassay, Kelvin McDaniel, Jeremy Pursley, and Kevin Wolf are all friends from the Tampa Bay area (one is in the SF Bay area) who formed their team based upon their mutual healthcare experiences and their desire to improve health monitoring in the home.
The 2016 AT&T Developer Summit Hackathon challenged over 1,000 developers to create an app in a day. The top 20 teams presented their apps to be judged at the Hackathon, narrowing the field to three teams with the opportunity to show off their apps on stage during the Summit Keynote. Team KineticCare was voted the overall winner via audience text message polling. Congrats!

Florida CodeCamps (CC), SQL Saturdays (SS) ITProCamps (IT), and BarCamps in 2016:
Dates are being filled in as they're known. If you haven't attended in the past, a CodeCamp is a free, all-day Saturday developer event put on by regional developers, for developers. If you've been to CodeCamp in the past, then you know you don't want to miss the upcoming season. BarCamps are similar to CodeCamps, except they're not developer-specific, covering business, design, and other topics as well.
