Yahoo! Open Hack is Back!
The Yahoo Developer Network is very excited to announce the return of Open Hack India, to be held on the 30th and 31st of July in Bangalore, India. This event will mark the 4th Open Hack in India and Yahoo!'s 15th Global Open Hack event.
The last India Open Hack held in Bangalore in 2010 was a huge success with over 600 developers and designers hacking into the wee hours and producing an astounding 110 fantastic technology hacks. We are planning to make this event even bigger and better then before.
We hereby issue a call to action for developers and designers from all across India and Asia to come to Bangalore 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.
Our FREE event will begin with a series of hack-related presentations from some of the Web’s most respected developers. We’ll then dive into 24 hours of 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. We will end the event on the second day with the hack demos plus bragging rights until the end of eternity or the next Hack Day, whichever comes first.
If you’d like to attend the event, then please register here. 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 could be hacking individually or in groups but please sign-up individually.
