On Friday and Saturday, amateur, professional and student app developers can show their stuff at the AT&T Mobile App Hackathon.
The two-day competition will consist of an interactive networking session where developers will group into teams and begin brainstorming app ideas.
Afterwards, sessions will include non-stop coding, computing and designing. Developers will get the chance to pitch their completed apps on Saturday evening for a chance to win prizes.
Speakers for the Hackathon include Alex Donn, senior marketing manager at AT&T; Lucien Vattel, CEO of GameDesk; and others.
The event, which kicks off at 6 p.m. Friday, will be at Real Office Centers Santa Monica, located at 604 Arizona Ave. The 44,260-square-foot location was last occupied by Google. It features more than 200 socially-conscious, shared workspaces with enough room for 150 companies, according to the company‚Äôs website.
The space is geared toward the high-tech and entertainment industries, which make up a significant portion of Santa Monica‚Äôs business community, helping it earn the moniker Silicon Beach.
