We’re pretty damn excited and you should be too! We’re proud sponsors of the NYC Photo Hack Day that will go down August 20th and 21st in General Assembly, NYC.
A bunch of amazing developers and designers will get together for two days and work on building a set of photo apps using APIs from 500px, Foursquare, Instagram, SmugMug, Tumblr and… (drumroll)…yes, Piictu! You can read more about the event in the Photo Hack Day website.
so why the extra excitement? The winner of the hackathon will have their app displayed on NASDAQ’s Times Square Billboard (seriously!). 2nd, 3rd, and People’s Choice winners will also receive cash prizes!
To get your mind going, check out some cool hack ideas, including the ones we’ve proposed.
If you’re a coder or designer, and want to join, register here. The whole piictu team will be there (with serious plans of drinking some beer) so come say hi! :D
At the piictu headquarters, we get a ton of enjoyment by seeing our awesome users having fun with our product. To return the favor, we’ve decided to give you and inside look at the piictu office.
The first thing you should know is that piictu is part of the TechStars program. Over 1000 companies apply, and only 12 are accepted. These 12 companies share office space at the TechStars headquarters, which is located right by Union Square in NYC.
As for the piictu space in particular, here are a couple of snapshots from our working area.
Its not all work-work-work, we play ping pong to unwind.
Thats the end of the tour…
We love talking and meeting new people… If you have any questions or comments about the product; or anything in general, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org - we’ll get back to you asap. If you are in NYC drop us a line well buy you a coffee :)
