GForge is Sponsoring HackISU 2016

hackisuWe are happy to announce we are sponsoring HackISU by offering over $3000 in prizes in several different categories.  Plus internships.  And swag.  HackISU is a Hackathon that will be held on the Iowa State University Campus on February 19-21.  This is a great opportunity for budding geeks to hack software, hardware and network.  As sponsors we are providing a couple of incentives for participants to learn, use and even hack GForgeNext.

Best GForge API Application – $2400 ($600 per team member)

Build something great using our API – like a mobile version of Team Chat, a Task/Queue manager, a Team Status Wall, or whatever else you come up with.

We’ll be around for nearly all of the HackISU event, ready to demo the API, answer questions and provide any other assistance that’s legal.  Check out the live API and docs right now at https://next.gforge.com/apidoc

GForgeNext Beta Users – $1200 ($100 per person, up to 3 teams)

Use GForgeNext to store your code, manage tasks, and stay connected using integrated project chat, for free.  We’ll pick up to three teams, and give everyone $100 each.

Even after HackISU is done, you can keep using GForgeNext.  We’ll keep it free for academic use, even after the full product goes live.

Instant Interviews for Paid Summer Intern Positions

Got a resume handy?  Bring a copy for us and we’ll do a quick interview on the spot.  Our summer interns get paid real-world money to build real-world software.  Interns turn into part-time and full-time GForge employees on a regular basis.

GForge-Branded Swag, of course

We’ve got t-shirts, stickers, all kinds of stuff.  Find a reason to talk to us, and we’ll give you something cool.
