Developers are marching forward and hacking their way to create solutions for issues that they care about. Recent weeks have seen a number of hackathons where developers come together, meet up and hack the night away sometimes for up to 24 hours at a stretch to create initial versions of their applications. And if the theme for the hackathon is one that could change lives for some of us, then the effort is more noteworthy. Hack For Change saw more than 50 developers and designers create 17 useful applications that could actually do a lot of good as they develop further, including the winner, a group messaging app for neighbors built on the Twilio API.
GitHub has announced a beta public release of a new Checks API that gives developers to build solutions for continuous integration, linting and acceptance testing. The API, which currently works with GitHub's REST API, allows GitHub integrations to obtain richer information about code commits.
