After last month's BBM Hackathon in NYC, Research In Motion has decided to host 9 BBM Hackathons throughout the U.S., Canada and other countries around the world. We're definitely happy to see RIM jumping on this event and expanding on the original one. We had such a great time at the first ever BBM Hackathon that we're not surprised to see more of these Hackathons being organized around the globe.
The next BBM Hackathon will be held in good ol' RIM Headquarters in Waterloo, Ontario next week (Sept 28-29th, 2011). If you would like to attend the Waterloo Hackathon, RIM has started a contest for 30 chances to enter to come to the event. Winners will get a one night stay on September 28th, 2011 at the Destination Inn in Waterloo and a BlackBerry gift pack (I wonder what goodies it'll have). Food and drinks will also be provided at the event on both days.
