This hackathon is designed for attendees (technical & non-technical) to learn more about HTML5 single-page web apps, build HTML5 single-page apps, and compete for great prizes. This event is open to the general public and includes free food. To help you build a winning app, we will introduce you to the latest cutting edge tools for building single-page apps, including YUI and Meteor.
