Come hack on the SmartThings platform! 5/21 - 5/22

Hi everyone!

I’m from the Samsung Accelerator, and we’re throwing a hack-a-thon with SmartThings May 21-22. There will be hardware, knowledgeable experts from SmartThings and Samsung, prizes, and food. Come flex your skills and make something great.

We’re hosting at the Samsung Research America campus in Mountain View, with a shuttle from San Francisco if you need it.

It promises to be a great event - I hope to see you there!


It’s gonna be a blast!

I saw a few tweets…tell us more! What did people come up with!
Sure, for a brief moment I want to live vicariously through people half way across the country…
but inquiring minds want to know!
