Grow Hackathon!

#ICYMI: The 2014 Grow Hackathon is in full effect today and tomorrow in Whistler, BC.

This 30-hour hackathon invites the best and brightest hackers to make Whistler the most connected global resort destination.

From Grow Hack:

The city of Whistler is your sandbox for innovation. Over 2 days, designers, developers, project managers and engineers will collaborate with restaurateurs, civic administrators, hoteliers, retailers and resort operations.”

Kiip’s CEO Brian Wong will be at the event, with free pizza and Mountain Dew to keep you coding until the next day.

We also dropped Whistler Blackcomb “free passes” to use as sample rewards in your app. When you call a moment, it will trigger this reward for your users:

Make sure you register on our docs to get your application key and secret. Once your app is live, you can fill it with any of your own rewards – we’ve just placed these to get you started.

Rewards lead to higher engagement among users and better monetization for developers. 84 percent of mobile users say they prefer mobile rewards vs. ads, and over 3,000 games and apps already use Kiip to monetize. Learn more about Kiip at
