Thanks to SignalFire‘s creative efforts , you will get to role play as a Family Guy character solving puzzles and winning points through reading documentation and using APIs to help you through your journey. The guys from Pearson Developers explains it best:
The Scavenger Hunt is designed to challenge students to solve problems utilizing technology and APIs. This is an opportunity for students to work with and discover participating partners’ products and services as well as display their skills and command with different technologies.
So get your thinking hats on and register for your weekend of programming fun!
If you have any questions with our API, feel free to reach out to us @tokbox or to me directly @songz or email firstname.lastname@example.org
To get you started (hint*), heres a list of sponsors and what how they can can help you with your hunt:
Need Video Chat? Use OpenTok’s API for that. For the best quality, use Chrome.
Use MailGun’s API to send Email and parse incoming email.
Need high res images? Use Pearson’s DKImages. Need to retrieve recipes for your app? Use their Kitchen Manager
Use Microsoft’s SkyDrive API to add cloud storage to your App.
And as always, have Fun! Register Here, and I’ll see you this weekend!
