appStar Hackathon – Bangalore & Mumbai

You have always wanted to use Telco APIs for better monetizing your apps, ain’t it? Do you know that Vodafone offers its Network APIs for developers? Do you want to try them out, with face-to-face technical support available even as you try? Here is your chance.

To support you with App development and API integration process, we are organizing a hackathon to accelerate your app development process. You can think of monetizing your existing apps by simply integrating with our payment API or enhance your existing app using our location API. (We know you are not behind these, but there are goodies if you indeed complete at least one API integration during the hackathon!)

Please note this is an invite only event – To request for an invite, please share your details here.

What’s more, you could also submit these apps for the Vodafone appStar developer contest that is underway and get a chance to visit MWC. See contest details here.

Dr. Shikaripura Krishnamurthy
One could easily call him a “Impersonator of Mahatma Gandhi”, because Dr Shikaripura Krishnamurthy, a professor in Sanskrit at St Aloysius College, Mangalore resembles quite a bit like Mahatma Gandhi- and that’s the reason he was specially picked by the producer to be the leading role actor in the film “Kurmavatara”. This film has won the National Award for the best Kannada film. Dr. Krishnamurthy has been a soft skills trainer and has taught at various corporates/organizations and is known for his lively and humour packed sessions.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Sub: Inviting your good self to participate in Fortis- “COLOROTHON”-Season2-(A BREATHE Entertainment Concept) Draw your imagination to celebrate World HEART Day.

Greetings from the Residents, Staff, Volunteers and Management of Omashram Trust – Old Age Care-Bangalore
We are pleased to inform you that we have partnered with Fortis Healthcare to host COLOROTHON 2014 Season 2(A BREATHE Entertainment Concept) in Aid of Omashram Trust – Old Age Care to mark World Heart Day, 28th September 2014, Sunday @ TBS Park Whitefield. Timings-9am onwards.
Over 10,000 people of all age groups (5 yrs onwards) are expected to draw/paint at the same time on one platform. People from all walks of life across Bangalore are invited to participate.

The Objective of the event is to add a rosy sunset to the lives of the neglected elders. Some Parents are fortunate enough to be under the care of their families… feel & rejoice oneness! What about those who can’t? Let us add color to their colorless lives. It is also an attempt to enter the Limca Book of Records & Guinness Book of World Records – for largest number of people drawing at the same time.

Fortis – COLOROTHON-Season 2, is that one initiative which will try to rekindle the lost joy of drawing & painting in you. Here’s a platform, deftly created for people to pick up those arty tools and colorfully express themselves on paper & draw their imagination along with thousand of fellow art lovers, curators, first time expressionists, artists and art admirers and paint to their heart’s elation!

Since it is not a competition, people need not be worked up about how good they are.. Just come and draw, if not for you then for hundreds of neglected ELDERS at Omashram Trust-Old Age Care, working towards care and succour of the Elderly, that COLOROTHON is supporting… Let us light up their blackened lives, by bringing in solidarity with them. The 200 best paintings chosen by our panelists will be auctioned and the proceeds will go to Omashram Trust.

Hence we humbly request you to personally participate and also send your respective students, employees & members to come and show solidarity by participating in this initiative, sharing their energy and valuable time and support to make Colorothon more meaningful and resourceful.

Colorothon is not just a drawing event, It is a wholesome carnival to promote Art & Culture that includes Art Bazaar, cartoon characters, street magic shows, drum circle, caricatures, comedy shows, live band performances, cartoonists and much more colorful ambience to entertain you.
Looking forward to your support to make Colorothon a successful & a Unique Property.(Twice a Year – Republic Day & World Heart Day)
