Douglas Saisho (@mistersaisho) and Demian Borba (@demianborba) of Action Creations (@actioncreations) had a big first place win at AT&T Developer Summit Hackathon 2012 in Las Vegas! They worked non stop for 7 hours and competed against 150 amazing developers coming from all over the world.
We’re especially excited about this win because the team created their Blackberry Playbook mobile AIR app using FDT 5. Demian Borba said smiling:
“Thanks to @FDT5, we were incredibly fast when coding, compiling and debugging our app” and Doug Saisho (@fits in “We couldn’t have done it without FDT.”

This is a quote from RIM:
“I just wanted to say a huge thank you on behalf of the Developer Relations and AT&T carrier team here at RIM for all your efforts this past weekend at the developer summit. It was great to meet everyone in person and I hope you had fun! No doubt it was a long and grueling day (and night!) but it was amazing to see all the awesome ideas and apps that came out of the event. Congratulations to team Action Creations who won the grand prize with their Action X-Ray app as well as finalist Hopichest!”
