Connect all the apps! Dig into our new connected apps platform at our 2012 hackathon

You guys! The foursquare hackathon is back! And this year, we’re inviting you to hack foursquare itself. Our all-new Connected Apps platform enables you to wire new functionality directly into the core foursquare experience and make your app discoverable to the over 20 million people already on foursquare.

On November 3, we’ll open up our NYC & SF offices for an all-day Connected Apps hackathon. And like last year, we’re inviting developers all around the world to band together and hack up some awesome connected apps. We’ll have great prizes (last year one of the winning teams had their hack running on a giant screen in Times Square and even rang the closing bell for NASDAQ! Oh, and there’s a new title belt!), swag, and (naturally) global glory for the best foursquare hacks, no matter where in the world they come from.

To sign up, head over to our Meetup page and keep an eye on hackathon.foursquare.com for more details as the event draws nearer.

Ready? Set? Connect all the apps!
