EE is hosting the UK’s first 4G hackathon designed to pioneer the next generation of business and public sector apps. Every developer at the hackathon will be provided with a 4G Huawei mobile WiFi device to use on the day. EE launched the UK’s first 4G network in 2012. 4GEE will help to lay the foundations for a mobilised Britain, with the best UK developers pushing the boundaries of what is possible on 4GEE.

Developers from EE’s custom mobile app partner, Mubaloo, will be available over the weekend to help teams with their ideas and help guide on development.

The judging panel will include industry experts from EE, Google and Mubaloo. API partners will be announced shortly and have been selected to help with the themes:

1. Real-time collaboration with 4G for the business sector (real-time chat, video conferencing, file transfer etc.)
2. Real-time collaboration with 4G for the public sector (location-based information, real-time reporting of issues etc.)
3. Augmented reality app for business (logo recognition with key company information, enhanced business cards etc.)

There will be prizes for the best use of APIs at the event (to be announced) but main prizes include:

12-month 4GEE mobile WiFi contracts with 50GB data usage a month for participants in the three winning teams
£500 Amazon, iTunes and Play Store vouchers for the overall student team winner
£1500 Amazon, iTunes and Play Store vouchers for the overall business focus app team winner
