Hackathons

I am currently at a hackathon (an event, typically lasting several days, in which a large number of people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming) called knights hack sponsored by popular companies such as Dell, Siemens, Deloitte, and Google ! I am not new to hackathons, but here seems to be a collaboration of friends, ideas, and a diversity of women, and minorities that I haven't seen before.This event is ran by Major League Hacking (MLH) & Knight Hacks, and had an opening talk by one of the alienware cofounders Frank Azor.
