Yahoo! Intern Open Hack is Here!
Yahoo! University Recruiting is very excited to announce the second annual Intern Open Hack!
We hereby issue a call to action for Intern developers and designers from all across the valley to come to Yahoo! and participate in this most awesome of events!
Yahoo! will provide you with everything you need to have fun, be creative and productive, and impress your peers with what you can do with a computer and the wealth of technologies and data available on the Web.
We will be fueling your creativity with a variety of Yahoo! technologies and APIs, including YUI, YQL, Flickr, Updates, Answers, and more. We will introduce you to lots of wonderful data sets that are ripe for mashup and visualization. We will keep you fed, watered and entertained for the duration of the event. All you need to bring is your creativity, your laptop, and your toothbrush.
What is Open Hack?
Firstly, what is hacking? For all you newbies, here is a great introduction on Hacking- Hacking 101 by Chris Heilmann or check out these great videos; Ricky Montalvo's Hackumentary & Hack Day @ Yahoo!.
Our FREE event begins with an introductory session on Friday July 26th, with an intro to Yahoo! Hacking. Followed by dinner, demos and a chance to meet other Hackers who might need a team. At that time we’ll dive into hacking, using a great collection of web tools, services and APIs from the Yahoo! Developer Network, and other APIs and data from around the Web. The event will end the following day with the hack demos. This is your chance to show off the fruits of your labors for the judges and your fellow participants. Up for grabs are some great prizes, plus bragging rights until the end of eternity--or the next Hack Day, whichever comes first.
If you think you have what it takes, then please register here before July 15, 2013. Due to the limited size of the venue, we will be reviewing applications for attendance and giving preference to those we believe will best be able to contribute to the design or development of a hack at the event.
You can hack individually or as a team of up to 4 people.
What do you need to know?
If you’re selected to participate, you’ll receive a confirmation email in mid July with everything you need to know.
