A week ago, we organized the First Online Hackathon sponsored by our friends at GimmieWorld.com
They put a challenge: 48 hours to create an iOS game. And also a great prize: XBOX360, mentoring from Jason Citron (founder of Openfeint) and Roy Liu (Lead Mobile Developer for Plants v Zombies) and tickets to present the game at the Pre GDC Mobile Mixer event.
And hacked this amazing game:
We want to thank John and Francisco for participating. And also to Gimmie for sponsoring this hackathon.
Hey everyone, my name is Diego Araos. I am an Engineer, Developer and Entrepreneur. I have been hacking and creating apps for the last 10 years.
I wanted to create a community where people all around the world could connect with developers and designers anytime to create apps and hack stuff online, so I decided to work full-time and launch WeHack.it: the first website made to organize Hackathons, find developers and designers teammates to create quick projects, all in real-time.
Hackathons are a great way to create, learn, compete and win prizes. Also a good way to find amazing people to work with in startups.
By participating in some Hackathons, I got to know amazing people from all over the world. I loved this experience so much that I decided to take it to a virtual level. My goal is to keep spreading the word so more people join this culture of hacking to create new things.
I built the backbone of the site using RoR. A Node.js app is supporting the push notifications to a create real-time environment on chat, tasks and general updates on the site.
If you want to contribute to this project, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, let’s make this dream come true :)
