Wow, THAT was a great weekend. The Advance Hackathon was a complete success. Over 100 people hacking, networking and having fun together. It was one of the best hackathons I ever participated. The project topics have been very amazing. From an instagram clone with a distributed storage system to a lego sequenzer everyone worked on brilliant stuff. During the whole time you could feel the energy in the room. All projects can be found in the wiki. Hopefully there will be an update about all projects on the blog soon. The great german sign language presentation by Pamela Perniss was a nice surpise, too!

And the food was fucking brilliant. I don't want to know how much weight I have gained through that weekend :o . And the barista(!!) made perfect coffee:

Our team (Lucas, Timo, Tobias and myself) worked on adding new features to We

  • added a mobile layout
  • made it possible for everyone to edit events
  • created an ical importer
  • updated all gem dependencies
  • added the possiblity to favorite tags
  • started updating the layout to a 8 bit layout
  • and tons of other stuff

Thanks to the Mediencluster NRW for organizing this #awesome event!. Hope you will repeat this soon!

Ps: putpat is searching new developers!
