Hackathon

Eric PughFebruary 13, 2009

We like to get together periodically and hold “Lightning Talks” for an afternoon that focus on what weve been doing and learning. However this time we decided to take a full day and get as many of us who could make it to hack together on new things. From 9:00 to 10:00 we threw out ideas and then broke up into small teams of 2 or 3 folks. We started coding at 10:00, and frantically worked on our ideas till 4:00 PM. We did demos of our cool new projects form 4:00 to 5:00, and then adjourned to South Street Brewery to celebrate what wed learned. Here are just a couple of snaps: We had one team that wanted to “Play with Google APIs” using the new Ajax Playground, so we built a couple of little photo journal and map demos using the Google Earth Browser plugin.
