Our next hacking event as part of HackDays is happening in Calgary. We just wrapped up our Waterloo Hackathon and are looking forward to meeting Calgary developers in June. If you are not familiar with our hackathons: we organize monthly hacking events that bring together the brightest developers across Canada. We work together in a day, in a space to hack and create awesome applications using local APIs. HackDays selects local APIs, make them available to participating developers with expert guidance from the API providers and an environment where you are going to be excited about hacking and creating! The hack day is also a competition: as a developer you will compete for great prizes and glory! And this is all done in a day! So if this is up your alley, join us in Calgary:
