Apple Watch Hackathons in May - San Francisco and Prague

STRV, a full service mobile and digital agency, will host its first public Apple Watch "Hack-a-Thon" Saturday, May 9 in Prague, Czech Republic, followed up by May 23, at its offices in San Francisco, CA.
The events are being hosted in order to come up with innovative app ideas for the Apple Watch. The events, part of the new STRV Labs research platform, will closely follow the highly anticipated April 24 release of Apple's new Apple Watch, which was announced last week.

"Hackathons are about ideas," says STRV CEO, David Semerad, "and we're looking for innovative app concepts and cool designs that will inspire the app community. It's always exciting to see and discover new talent. We're looking forward to learning what local developers and designers in two of the main markets where we operate can bring to the table."

The Hackathons are open to all interested iOS developers and designers, who will work together in teams of one or two to come up with compelling app ideas using Apple's WatchKit. There will be plenty of Apple Watches on hand to test the apps, and each member of the winning team will be awarded with their own Apple Watch.

Winners will be selected by STRV team members.

"We'll be looking at the overall package," says Lubo Smid, COO at STRV who will act as the hackathons mentor. "The winning team must not only present a great app idea but also have an eye-catching design. In my opinion, the perfect team combo will include an experienced developer and designer."

The day will start with a brief Apple Watch tutorial given by STRV designers before teams are turned loose to hack away! Snacks and lunch will be provided. Admission is free, though teams must register beforehand. So mark your calendars. STRV will be releasing more information in the coming weeks. Register at
