This past weekend Clover sponsored GDG (Google Developer Group) LA’s meetup and hackathon. We met with hundreds of developers and introduced them to Clover and our App Market. During our hackathon, groups competed to win our grand prize — a 4K Ultra HDTV.
Our booth had Clover devices on display and was stocked with our awesome swag — water bottles, bottle openers, and Clover stickers.
For the hackathon, the projects had to integrate with our Android SDK or REST APIs. We awarded prizes to the top five teams, including three $50 Google Play gift cards, a wireless speaker, and a 43” 4K Google Cast-enabled TV.
Our first place hackathon winner, Whale, uses bluetooth beacons to recognize highly valuable customers. Merchants are alerted on their Clover device when one of their highly valuable customers enters a store. Merchants can even see if these customers are returning after a long absence. Now merchants are able to provide customized and preferential service to attract and retain valuable customers.
