First Ever Sponsored Hackathon Team Debuts at AngelHack

by Jane Buescher | Thursday, December 20th, 2012

A hand-selected crew of creative, hack-happy engineers and designers donned their RockIT-sponsored velour tracksuits for a haction-packed weekend.  With Outhack Steak for brain food, the team got to work solving the question: What does everybody love?


The answer: Free Shiz of course*

As the team got hacquainted with each other's skill sets, they divided the mobile, back-end and design work among them.

The coming together of this team was no haccident or hact of God.  With haccess to top-tier engineers in the Bay Area, RockIT's team haccolades number over 150 Hackathons, 10,000+ forked Github repos, and 17 bajillion LinkedIn requests from recruiters. The hacurtains weren't drawn until 5am.

At the end of the day, we made new friends, learned some new APIs, and built a solid mobile app.

I'd say it was a hack of a good time.(pic)
