This was a great hackathon. We learned things we might not have without the hackathon. I know for sure I did. I was never able to setup Apache with PHP in the past because of reasons, but the hackathon had me tackle the problem until it was solved [for the entire 1st day].
Finals at Contra Costa College are over & we are immediately starting the hackathon. We have planned which house each team will stay in, ground rules for each house, the food to order, & times to check-in with each other. We have about 50 hours together in this event.
We are approaching another wonderful hackathon in 3 weeks. This one is named the "Virtual Hackathon". It is virtual in the sense that we will not all be in 1 building, but in separate houses working on different things. We will communicate to the other houses through the interwebs when necessary. Some of us members [including me] will be offering our houses for 3 days, from May 24 to May 26.
