Zillow Group to host a “hackathon”
The event is November 6-8 in San Francisco at the Trulia offices. They are giving away $25,000 in prize money. The event will focus on developers creating products using MLS listing data and using Zillow’s new Public Data API. For the MLS listing data they have received written permission from the respective MLS provider.
I think these type of “hackathon” events are great crucibles for spurring on ideas and innovation. I’m hoping they get a great turnout. They have room for 300 participants.
At the end entrants will need to give a live 3 min demonstration of their product. Note to Zillow please, please, please, live stream the demos!!
