PeopleLinx is hosting the weWorkInPhilly Hackathon – Saturday, September 14!
PeopleLinx is hosting a Hackathon and we want you to take part. Build cool stuff, meet new people, challenge yourself, and help strengthen the Philly tech community. And do it all in just a few hours!
We’ll be hacking on weWorkInPhilly, brainstorming and collaborating on new features, and modifying and using their APIs. And don’t be surprised if a few games of foos break out.
But above and beyond the work we’ll be doing on Saturday, September 14, 2013 from 9 AM – 5:30 PM are all the fringe benefits and perks of meeting and working side-by-side with smart and creative people who are as passionate about tech as you are. Here’s what you can expect to do:
- Roll up your sleeves and rub elbows with Mark Headd (CTO Philadelphia), Alex Hillman, Chris Cera, and me (Keith Fitzgerald, CTO of PeopleLinx)
- Meet some of smartest coders, hackers, product managers, web designers, data gardeners, and test engineers you’ll find anywhere in technology.
- Improve weWorkInPhilly, a community-edited guide to the People, Companies, Groups, Projects, Products, and Resources that make up the creative, technology, and business community in Philadelphia.
- Get a sweet Hackathon t-shirt to show your Philly tech pride.
