Open Hack 2009

a Yahoo! Hack Day in India (Bangalore)

Open Hack Day 2009 is now over. You can find more current details on the event and winners at the Hackers Lounge.

Namaste!

You didn’t think being in Bangalore once was enough for the Open Hack Day, did you?

We’re back and we’re ready to see what creative hacks the Indian developer community can come up with.

What is this?

We’ll be inviting 200-300 developers to attend this FREE event, which will begin with hack-related presentations from some of the Web’s most respected developers. We’ll then dive into 24 hours of hacking on a very nice collection of tools, Yahoo!s Open Platforms, other APIs, and data, and end with awards from the sponsors 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 BOSS, Blueprint, YAP, YQL and more…

Naturally, we plan to provide physical and mental sustenance throughout the event.

If you’d like to be considered for participation please let us know now. 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 do sign-up individually.
