Everyone can contribute… AND THERE ARE REWARDS like gift cards, great food, comfortable couches/chairs, potentially $1,000 for each contributor… maybe even a job! Plus there will be press coverage and other businesses/groups will be part of this and if it is successful, we can expect to hold more Hackathons!The HACKERS HEAVEN HACKATHON will run ALL WEEKEND, at Todd Bernhard’s house!
