NY Times Hack Day 2012

Looks like we canโ€™t get enough of the New York Times. After a spectacular day at the NYTimes Open Source Science Fair last month, weโ€™re headed back to midtown Manhattan this Saturday, Dec 8th, for the TimesOpen Hack Day – and this time weโ€™re participating as judges!

Intridea Co-Founder and Board Member, Yoshi Maisami will be on the judges panel and helping dish out prizes. The event promises to bring together developers, designers and broader tech talent in a mashery of laptops, API calls, pizza, soda, crumpled Snickers wrappers, and undoubtedly a few weekend copies of the New York Times.

Over 100 hackers are expected to participate for just under 12 hours of programming, and festivities include lightning rounds, a hardware hacking demo, and neat giveaways. Last yearโ€™s Hack Day was a great success, with the New York Times unveiling three new APIs of its own: Events, Semantic, and Geo. We canโ€™t wait to see what neat MVPs come out of Saturdayโ€™s event, and if the Times reveals any new APIs of its own once again.

As always, be sure to stay tuned to Intrideaโ€™s Twitter stream for updates and visit our blog for a recap.

Good luck to all the hackers. Watch for our posse of Intrideans in green track jackets, and see you at the New York Times Building!
