October 2013


We did! I really do mean ‘we’. I couldn’t have gotten the votes with out everyone’s support. It means a lot to me! To Nicole and to the company!

Maybe you’ve got new things to show your existing communities, hackathons are great ways to galvanize community around what you offer. Generate awesome new ideas or companies (Startup weekend style) as well as find awesome new talent.   So there it is, you’re looking to do a hackathon and need some help actually doing it,¬†Ping me.
