In fact, we're such big fans of Meteor that we've decided to put together a combination drinkup/hackathon in its honor. JSpot CEO and Meteor NY Captain Elissa is co-organizing/hosting. It was her (excellent) idea to add beer to the mix, because, as you well know, a hackathon without beer is like a musician without an ear. Or something.
As for the hackathon itself, we have a few ideas (Meteorite James suggested a microblog or real-time chat program), but we'll leave the deciding to the group! In the meantime, get inspired by checking out the neat apps built by Meteorites in Johannesburg and Minneapolis.
- 6:30-7: meet, greet, mingle
- 7-7:15: brainstorm an app to build
- 7:15-8:15: build!
- 8:15-8:30: show 'er off!
Afterwords, those in a more Dylan Thomasy frame of mind can repair to a nearby bar (we're in the LES, so there'll be plenty of options).
Can't wait to see you all there!
