Application Development Hackletics has Ignited

It is very exciting to be on the verge of helping lead a two week application development. It is something of a perfect storm. We have many Hackletic Poobahs helping. Of course, Paul Steinberg, architect of the Code for Good Hackathons. We also have Brad Hill, an Intel HTML5 expert who has helped run each hackathon. We have six of my students, all involved with past hackathons.

It is going to be interesting to spread the contiguous hackathon hours over a two week period and help new students create a working app.

In case you might like to follow along from home, below are resources we advocate. More good stuff to follow.
