DC Hack and Tell Message Board › Round 5 Wrap-Up

Round 5 Wrap-Up

Seems like every Hack and Tell is even better than the last - an auspicious start to 2014 indeed! Thanks to everybody who came out, and of course especially to our presenters!

  • Where is Pulkit? At Hack and Tell! With a cool custom Android app and web system to easily monitor location and integrate media from his awesome road trip!

  • Jennifer ran all the way from Farragut West in order to show us how she ranks tech companies in DC by employee presence on GitHub. (code) API power!

  • With DC Restaurant Week in swing, Kristine's project was very timely - identifying restaurant week locations to try, on the basis of their data from Yelp. And don't forget about bitbucket, all you github people! :) (code and TSV)

  • We got ever so slightly meta with Harlan's meetup dice hack to choose random meetup attendees - with an interface optimized for fun! (code) (Prizes not included.)

  • Rick showed his cool hardware/software project with Raspberry Pi and XMBC to create a flexible and low-cost home entertainment system. Hack and Tell loves hardware projects!

  • Aaron toured some Google App Engine projects (12) and talked about getting some test interaction data out. (blog post)

  • With the holiday season behind us, Eric brought one more gift in the form of a technical recap covering innovations

Note also that H&T is starting to collect all the wrap-ups in a repo that you can explore to your heart's content - New York especially has a lot of wrap-ups with cool projects to peruse!
The next H&T will be coming in February - watch for the official announcement on meetup!
