Each year across the globe, the Evernote Developer Relations team supports millions of designers and engineers build projects on the Evernote Platform: our combination of APIs, tools, and partner apps that help you remember everything.

This past weekend, we’ve had the opportunity to meet over 800 developers that are taking part in TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon Europe at Old Billingsgate Vault in London.

What’s a Hackathon?
It’s the best place to meet future team members, learn a new programming language, test out multiple APIs, and set aside 24 hours to complete that long neglected side project!


Also, hackathons are weekend events that challenge tech and designers to build a project over the course of a weekend, with the top projects getting acknowledged for their achievements.

Hackathons tests a teams’ coding abilities, UX prototyping design, and decision making for features over a tight schedule. Not to mention a over consumption of pizza, red bull, and NERF dart launchers.
