Midem reintroduces Hack Day for 2013, calls for app developers


Midem 2013 will host the third edition of the Midem Hack Day, allowing 30 app developers to hack the next-generation of music-related apps in a 48-hour marathon.

On Saturday January 26, 30 international app developers will gather on the Innovation Factory stage for a one-hour call for ideas session where Midem participants will pitch them hack ideas.

The hackers will then have 48 hours to conceptualise, collaborate and build a brand-new generation of music-related hacks, apps, software, hardware, music and art.

Hackers will freely utilise available application programming interfaces (APIs) which allow them to incorporate advanced functionalities without having to build everything from scratch.

All applications built will be unveiled and demonstrated to the Midem audience at the end of the hacking, on Monday January 28.

Submissions can be made until Friday November 23 2012 from designers, front-end developers, software engineers, mobile app developers, who can be in Cannes, France, from January 26-29 2013.

Organised by Reed MIDEM, midem 2013 will take place in Cannes on January 26-29.
