Hackday – Final Countdown

It’s getting close! A little over two days are left before we kick off the Yahoo Hack Day! A lot has been written, the guest list / registration will close very soon and we are about to buckle up and go on the ride! There will be classes on Friday during the day ranging from social networks to performance, and in the evening we will have a huge performance that goes way beyond all the usual corporate music gigs, you name it. People are already speculating and we will see who gets it right at the end.

Besides the entertainment and classes we will have networking, coding, camping, presentations, wifi, food (not free – sorry, we spent the $ somewhere else), parking and and and. It will be a lot of fun! If you didn’t sign up already, this is your last call! You can do this on Upcoming.org.

Sidenote: The timer on the hackday page gets powered by the RESTful getTime web service that I wrote for fun. How much more basic then getTime can a web service get? That’s not the point :) The nice thing about it is that it supports JSON and serialized PHP on top of the XML output.
