WIX Hackathon: March 7-9 2013 ​Call for developers to make money

Wix, is a power house, in the web ecosystem. Via Wix, over 30 million sites were created. and Wix -- if you did not know -- is an Israeli company. I had the great pleasure to visit last week.

This year, Wix has gone the next step, and has created an the Wix app market where 3rd parties can create AND SELL apps to Wix site.

In the Hackathon, you will first learn how to build the apps, and then ... build them.
