When I’m running on a deadline for something due “today”, I sometimes buy some time with the mantra “today doesn’t end till I’ve gone to bed.” If I apply that rule to this hackathon, though, I’m not actually sure if this is day 2 or technically still day 1. I’ve got to admit that I faded and went to bed at 2:30am, but there were some committed and focused devs who worked all night long. By 7am the room was humming again. I’ll let Twitter tell most of the story; the photos and tweets give a great flavor of the day/night, capped off with 45 dueling app pitches in front of a pretty esteemed panel of judges. I know the whole room — and especially the judges — were WOW’ed by the creative, diverse, and impressive apps demo’ed tonight. Kudos and a big THANK YOU to all the devs who came, coded, and spent these last two days with us.
You are all winners to us.
