The HackWEEKDAY software development hackathon kicks off today in Kuala Lumpur, giving developers all around the globe the opportunity to showcase their coding skills. HackWEEKDAY runs alongside the 11th annual HITB Security Conference (HITBSecConf2013) in Malaysia, and is supported by Mozilla, Facebook and Microsoft.

HITBSecConf2013, organised by Hack-In-The-Box, is Asia’s premier deep-knowledge network security event, held annually and brings together the world’s best security experts under one roof.

For this year’s HITB, developers are encouraged to work on community service applications such as open data SOS/Emergency alert applications. Facebook’s developer and security teams will be at HackWEEKDAY to help developers integrate Facebook Social aspects into their applications. Development projects will focus on Facebook, Mozilla’s Firefox OS or Microsoft’s Windows 8/Windows Phone 8 operating systems.

“Microsoft is thrilled to be a key partner in HackWEEKDAY as it is part of our vision to transform Malaysia together through technology. As we transition into the App Economy, the Developer Ecosystem in Malaysia needs guidance, mentoring, training and a commercialization push to get these Apps out into the marketplace. Together, we hope to inspire these Developers and help them create an impact on this landscape. The time of the code warrior is here!” says Dinesh Nair, Director, Developer Platform, Microsoft Malaysia.

This year’s entries will be reviewed by a panel of judges from Microsoft, Facebook and Mozilla.
