Here at XDA, we celebrate developers of all types—from hardware hackers, to kernel commanders, and even bootloader bandits. Also, we love to see people make their own applications. Our love for app developers is so great that we have a special forum resource and are putting on a bunch of talks about app development at XDA:DevCon 2013.

One way an app developer can show of his or her stuff is to attend a hackathon. A hackathon is an event where developers can got together to build something. They often last a day to a week and have some intended end product. Often, there are winning groups or people. However, what if you are new and do you stand any chance against these seasoned veterans?

In today’s episode, XDA Developer TV Jayce talks about how a rookie can win a hackathon. Jayce interviews John Scott, the Berkley University Hackathon Winner and the Co-Creator of “Picture Yourself.” John talks about his experience at the hackathon. Find out what he has to say and check out this video.
