3rd Party APIs?

Can hackathon submissions utilize 3rd party APIs?

Absolutely!  When building your mobile app, you must also use the Salesforce Platform:  Force.com, Heroku, ExactTarget or one of our APIs.

 

Cheers!

Hi Nick/

Just to get further clarification:

 

We are entered as a team of two individuals.

We are employees of a company that has a developer API.

We plan to use that API in the Hackathon (in addition to Salesforce platform etc)

The company is a Delaware C corp, and we have permission from the company to join the Hackathon.

 

We want to make sure this qualifies as a 3rd party API.

We can provide the API documentation which the company provides to developers.

Hi annehm,

Any API that is not a salesforce.com API counts. So, bottom line, use any api that you like! Just be sure to use it in conjunction with salesforce.com platform.
