Joining forces with Silicon Valley startup incubator Y Combinator, and its prodigy Product Hunt, Aerospike will sponsor the first Product Hunt Hackathon in Mountain View, Calif. to educate local developers on creating high-performance database applications.
See the exciting projects that Product Hunt has already inspired.
As a tried-and-true tool for startups looking to scale quickly and reliably, Aerospike’s participation in this event will give developers the opportunity to deploy cutting-edge database technology in their applications. Aerospike Engineer Chris Stivers will lead a one-hour workshop titled, ‘Building High-Performance Database Applications’ to introduce participants to the Aerospike database, and methods for creating Application Program Interfaces (API) using one of the many client languages available.
Y Combinator will host the 24-hour event onsite at their headquarters at 320 Pioneer Way, Mountain View, CA 94041 Oct. 25-26, 2014. Doors open at 10:30AM, with the official hackathon start at 1PM. The top three winners will have the opportunity to pitch their product ideas at local venture capitalist firms. Developers unable to attend are encouraged to participate remotely.
