The application is required to use the AWeber public API. A temporary AWeber user account and API tokens will be provided to each team. We will also provide a sample boilerplate at a later date.

Functioning App

Hackers need to create a fully functioning application. While it does not need to be bug free, it should effectively depict the features and use of the AWeber API.

If your team is selected as one of the five teams to present to the judges panel, please feel free to further develop your application if needed. 

Topic / Categories

The application must leverage the AWeber API and all application should aim to solve problems that a small or midsized business might encounter while marketing their products.

New vs. Existing

All applications need to be newly created during the hackathon.

What to Enter

In addition to providing a link to your application, at the end of the hack all teams will be responsible for giving a 3-5 minute pitch to show how you've leveraged the AWeber API to create AWesome applications to be used by small and midsize businesses.
