We are delighted to announce our first hackathon, called Realex FinAppsParty, that takes place in London on 11th and 12th March 2016. The event will bring together talented developers, designers and entrepreneurs to compete for £15,000 (among other great prizes). Come and build amazing technology using our partners’ API/SDKs.

If you’re lucky, you might even get to party with Jim, our recently appointed ‘Head of Swag’. Though his idea of hacking is definitely a little bit unconventional…

The Challenge

Jim Computer Curtains

Jim’s latest idea for the Realex FinAppsParty hackathon.

The challenge is to build an innovative mobile app that best demonstrates our chosen partner’s product while integrating the most user-friendly payment process around – and yes, indeed, that’s our payment process…

To make life easier for you, we’ve chosen ingenious hackathon partners – WooCommerce, Amazon Web Services, Veridu & Post-Quantum to mention a few.

Once you are done with your app there is only one thing left: you will need to integrate our simple payment process. Don’t worry, this won’t take long! We will be making available our forthcoming mobile libraries which will take as little as 5 minutes to integrate.

The Requirements

You only have to do 3 things:

  1. Sign up!
  2. Have a bit of fun
  3. Build amazing tech for incredible prizes and you will own the rights to your work.
