Evernote & Deutsche Telekom DTHack Hackathon

Two weekends ago, more than 80 developers and designers gathered in Berlin for the Developer Garden DTHack Hackathon organized by Deutsche Telekom and Evernote.

Just a quick shut-out to Armin, a developer here at fruux, who took a shiny new iPad back home by winning the DTHack Partnership Prize together with his Hackathon team for building an application over the weekend that best utilized both the Evernote API and the Developer Garden Tropo API. The application EasyChef, which Armin helped building over the weekend, allows you to find recipes based on ingredients you already have in your fridge and on your shopping list (written as notes in Evernote). Users first call the EasyChef hotline to chose their preferred cuisine and mention any dietary restrictions. The app then uses the Telekom Tropo API to collect call data, mashing it with users’ notes to finally generate recipe suggestions.

The grand price would have been a trip to California, but luckily -thanks to the German Silicon Valley Accelerator- we're already there anyway.

Belated congratulations on your new iPad, Armin! :)
