Take a peek into a hackathon assembled on the fly.
By Marissa Louie, July 2
What happens when someone come up with a half baked idea that could -potentially- change up the commerce game, then decides to act upon it?
We are about to find out because in the past few hours we’ve assembled a team including up to 8 developers, 1 designer, and myself on the fly to hack it out and see if it will work:
- William Nelson
- Craig Benson
- Sugam Pandey
- Steve Enzer
- Lucija Kordic
- Ari Greenberg
- Joanne Sun
- Michael Arace
- Suyash Joshi
- Marissa Louie
We even have a sponsor who called with a generous offer:
Special thanks to appbackr, The New Way to Finance Your Apps.
The premise: I came up with an idea for a new platform about a day ago. Then we announced the hackathon on a whim.
The plan: Spend up to 48 hours developing an iPhone app while challenging ourselves to produce something of value to society.
This weekend should be a blast. Perhaps more fun than the trip to Belize, surfing, and golfing outings I cancelled in order to build this!
