We have a pretty awesome line-up of tools, platforms and APIs for people to use when building their local web and mobile apps this weekend at the CityGrid Los Angeles Hackathon:

3Scale (@3Scale) – A Plug & Play Cloud based API Management Infrastructure for Developers, Startups, SMBs and Enterprises to securely open, control, manage and monetize their API to 3rd parties.
CityGrid (@CityGridAPITeam) – Places, offers, reviews APIs and mobile, web and custom advertising with places that pay.
CloudyRec (@Cloudyrec) – CloudyRec is a mobile app scaffolding engine with integrated Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS).
Factual (@Factual) – Places, Products, Health, Education, Government and Entertainment accessible via database and API, with a Resolve API providing places intelligence and Crosswalk API identifying places across multiple systems like Foursquare, Yelp and Facebook.
GeoCoda (@GeocodaHQ) – Simple Geocoding API providing information about any U.S. address via an HTTP API, and a spatial database to store and manage location-based information.
IPGP (@IPlookup) – IPGP is a site that lets users lookup the location of their site’s visitors based on their IP addresses.
Iron.io (@Getiron) – Iron.io provides massively scalable cloud application services: IronWorker, a massively parallel worker platform and IronMQ is an elastic message queue as a service.
Jeppesen (@JeppesenJP) – Jeppesen Journey Planner is a cost effective way to integrate public transit information into your own website or mobile application.
