After the success of the openSocial tour with google, we are organizing with Jason from WebPal the first openSocial Hachathon in Hanoi the Saturday December 13th, 2008.
We are organizing it to help developers to use this new standard and to prepare them to the openSocial gadget contest where there are many prizes to win. It will be also the occasion for Vietnamese social networks to discover this standard.
It will be a slightly different organization from the google devfest since we will give more time to hacking, less to talk.
• 10:30AM – 11:00AM : Registration
• 11:00AM – 12:00PM : openSocial Presentation
• 12:00PM – 1:00PM : brainstorming + pizza
• 1:00PM – 5:00PM : Coding your openSocial applications
• 1:00PM – 2:00PM : guided walkthrough a first openSocial gadget
• 5:00PM – 6:00PM : presentation of what have been done in the afternoon
Also after having organized the first Barcamp in Hanoi in 2007, we are also working on the preparation of the Barcamp2 in Hanoi with Ninh. This one will be organized next year. Stay tuned…
Update: Vinny is organizing a Hackathon at the same time in Singapore in google office, and Pamela is organizing one in google’s office in Sydney. That will be fun to run them simultanously. I hope we will be able to exchange and work with the other events.
