As a reminder to our wonderful developer community, the virtual Enyo Hackathon is set to kick of on Sunday at noon Eastern Time. Groups will be gathering in New York City, Indianapolis, Oklahoma City, Dallas, San Diego, and San Francisco as well as tuning in from more than twenty countries around the globe to hack their way with EnyoJS and webOS.
As we noted last week, prizes hadn't yet been announced, but now they are known: an HP TouchPad will go to the best overall app, while the best app design and best functionality each will get an HP Pre3. And that's just for the hacking part - if you're able to make it in person to an event you'll see a bunch of prizes onsite from the individual meetup organizers.
As for who is going to be deciding the winners, a three person slate of HP's Ben Combee and Lisa Brewster joined by webOS Nation's Derek Kessler (yours truly) will be doing the evaluating, with the winners also getting featured on EnyoJS.com and this little site as well.
So if you've been itching for a reason to do some EnyoJS hacking, well, itch no longer - the Virtual Enyo Hackathon is this weekend, and it's bound to rock.
