Come join an enthusiastic bunch of Cloud Foundry developers in this first annual Summit Hackathon!  Bring your ideas and energy as we build interesting prototypes to extend CF functionality where it has never gone before.  Come with a team or come on your own and find a team during the event. Top three teams get awesome prizes and first place winners will be invited on stage during the Thursday morning keynotes to receive their awards.  This is a free event.  Pre-registration (add it to your Summit registration) required.

Topics: Any project that extends and enhances CF in an interesting way.  This could include: new CLI plugins, new buildpacks, additional multi-cloud capabilities via BOSH CPIs, innovative services or marketplace capabilities, reusing a Cloud Foundry component in a unique way, etc.  The overall goal here is to build on Cloud Foundry itself, not to build applications that run on Cloud Foundry.

Rules: Maximum of 4 individuals per team, and 80% of code should be written during the event.

Schedule: The hackathon will start with a full day moderated session on Tuesday, ending before Summit keynotes begin.  Teams are encouraged to continue to work on their own until project presentations on Wednesday at 3pm.
