Starting this evening and stretching over the weekend is this year’s FinTech Startup Weekend in New York City, which brings together financial technologists with the goal of building consumer and enterprise financial apps with tools provided by several API and data providers.
Attendees will pitch ideas, form teams and begin a weekend-long hackathon to bring their ideas to life. Coaches will be at hand to guide the teams.
The event culminates on Sunday with final presentations, judging and awards.
Caplin is offering BladeRunner, a framework for building enterprise-scale HTML5 apps, to help teams accelerate their web app development over the weekend. I’ll be around to answer any questions.
Thank you to everyone involved in organising what promises to be a lively and fruitful event!
