PayPal and Braintree will be hosting a 24-hour hackathon in Sydney, where developers compete for the chance to win a trip to Silicon Valley and $100,000 USD. The hackathon is part of the global BattleHacks competition that visits 14 cities around the world before culminating at the World Finals event in November.

During the Sydney Battle Hack, developers will be tasked with building a mobile application that solves a local problem of their choice and incorporates the PayPal API or Braintree SDK. Developers can compete as individuals, as a team or find people to collaborate with on the day, with a maximum of four people to a team.
