Code For India hosted its first hackathon last October. Building on the event’s success, and the dramatic growth in this socially focused technology community, Code For India will host its second hackathon this weekend. With the mantra, “Think Local, Hack Gobal,” in mind, developer communities in both Bangalore and Mountain View will dive into the second annual hackathon tomorrow, May 9th.
With all of the new APIs opening-up these days and increasing emphasis on development in the cloud, it's timely that next week is Mashup Camp. Now in its eighth run, it is free and once again there will be lots going on. Over at InformationWeek, co-founder David Berlind gives a good summary of the event. And although over 350 people have signed-up there are still a few spots available.
