DG Boston - Wear Hackthon Winners Announced - Thanks to our Sponsors - We had fun and exciting participation from the Boston/Cambridge developer community - Woohoo! What a great group.

We had 120 developers attend the hackathon last Friday night at Leaf to hear about the challenge and learn about the prizes.
Saturday 59 competitors produced code submissions for 17 projects. 

Thanks to our sponsors: Google, Leaf, Samsung, LG and Motorola for contributing to a great event.

So here's out winners:

1st Place: Peter Denham, John Doyle, Dermot Duncan
Project: Wearable app which translates gestures to control applications on a computer. For example, swiping the hand to switch to the next slide on a presentation.
Prizes: Samsung Galaxy Note 4's, Galaxy S Gear's, Galaxy Gear VR's

2nd Place: Ryan Pacifici,Joe Sullivan, Eric Lehner and  Krystyana Roman
Project:  Inspired by the Weasley's family clock from Harry Potter, this project will display a clock face, where each clock hand will represent a friend or family member, with locations (such as home, school, etc) along the edge of the watch.  Using GPS positioning, users will be able to see where their friends and family are on an easy to understand clock display.

It was a long trip to arrive at the hackathon that we started at the end of last summer. We had planned to hold a single code lab in September and a Hackathon in October. What we found out that it was early and the community needed more time to digest Android Wear so, we chose a different course to raise the Wear knowledge and awareness in the community. 

5 informal evening technical sessions - half hour of talks followed by bring you laptop and code with Wear sessions. In total we reached about 120 developers 

1 evening speaker session that reached 100 developers

1 Saturday Wear code lab that reached 60 developers

1 Friday and Saturday hackathon that reached 120 developers.

Total attendance at all the events totaled ~400 with ~150 uniques.

Hey, Joseph Banta of GDG Nashville here.  As you probably know, we're holding our Tango hackathon today -- Saturday, September 19 -- as well.  I was wondering how you guys might feel about doing a five minute video hangout to share progress across the groups?

I'm at josephbanta@gmail.com
