QuickBooks Connect Hackathon: What to Know, and How to Join Us Virtually

There are barely four days to go till the start of the QuickBooks Connect $100K Developer Hackathon. We’re eager to see your innovative ideas for apps that will solve real problems for accountants and small businesses. We’ve put together a detailed Hackathon FAQ that should answer a lot of your questions. Please be sure to read through it before you come. Something missing? Let us know and we’ll add it to the FAQ.

If you’re not able to join us in person in San Jose, we’ve got a unique and very cool opportunity for you to stop by for a spell, virtually. We’ve teamed up with Double Robotics to have some telepresence robots wandering around the venue. You can sign up to be a driver of one of these guys and wander around the hackathon yourself on Tuesday. Use it to check in with someone specific and see how they’re doing, or just meander through the hackathon to chat, or observe a team in action. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?  Next best thing to being there!

To reserve a time slot, all you have to do is sign up here. Want to check it out first? You can test drive a robot here and read more about the telepresence robots here. Cool stuff.

We’re looking forward to seeing you next week, either in person or via robot!

Best,

Lisa
