Developers, designers, and entrepreneurs are welcome!

To help you get the most out of the hackathon, we will provide dedicated, on-site support by our engineers. Come build your dream app, get some cool swag, compete for prizes and, most importantly, have fun hacking with us!
We have a very limited number of slots available, so if you want to come, please let us know no later than Tuesday, January 1st.


For the Hackathon, please RSVP here as soon as possible. Spots are limited!

Useful Resources

We are hoping for a mix of GoogleTV, mobile, and web apps using the YouTube APIs. To get prepared for the hackathon, we have listed out some resources below. Scroll to the bottom of the page if you prefer watching videos.

For most everything else you can do on, you will want to read up the YouTube Data API V3  (blogpost). Example code in a number of languages can be found here.

If you are interested in analytics, check out the new YouTube Analytics API.

Want your website visitors to be able to upload both webcam and video files to YouTube? Check out the Upload Widget/API.
