Open Hack India is back and we’re excited to see what creative hacks the vibrant Indian developer community can come up with
This is the 13th Yahoo Open Hack event we’ve hosted globally and will be the 3rd one in Bengaluru. We will have all the old favourites you have come to expect from an Open Hack event, but we also plan to shake things up a little with more content and some surprises. Watch this space for more…
What is Open Hack?
Firstly, what is hacking? For newbies to hacking here is a nice presentation on Hacking 101 by Chris Heilmann
We’ll be inviting 300+ developers to attend this FREE event which 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 awards ceremony plus bragging rights until the end of eternity or the next Hack Day, whichever comes first.
As a Hacker Guru you will get a chance to play with our newest releases such as
Naturally, we plan to provide physical and mental sustenance throughout the two day event.
If you’d like to be considered for participation 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 development of a hack at the event. You could be hacking individually or in groups but please sign-up individually.
