Mark Your EU Summit Calendar: Hackathon in Basel!

Did you know the winners of the last Cloud Foundry Hackathon will be giving a keynote on their project Blockhead?! That could be you next year!

It is my great pleasure to announce the second annual Cloud Foundry EU Summit Hackathon (and fourth Cloud Foundry Summit Hackathon to date)! A huge thank you to IBM for sponsoring this event.

In just two weeks we’ll be hacking away in Basel, building cool new projects which enhance or build upon Cloud Foundry. For full details, please check out the Hackathon event description.

If you’re attending Summit and would like to participate, please register. If you’ve already registered for Summit but would still like to attend the Hackathon, please send me an email at [email protected].  Spread the word to your friends and colleagues!

For those of you at Summit who are not participating, you’re still welcome to come watch the project presentations on Wednesday at 3:10 PM in the Rio meeting room.

Special thanks to IBM for sponsoring this event!  Thanks to IBM, we will have breakfast and lunch to sustain us throughout the Hackathon, not to mention excellent prizes for the top three teams!

The prizes, by the way, are awesome quadcopter drones!  They fly!  And shoot video! They’re great. Please adhere to all pertinent local ordinances while operating.  Do not spy on your neighbors. Do not weaponize your drones. With great power, friends, comes great responsibility.

See you at Cloud Foundry Summit in Basel! (Don’t forget to register!)
