    It was a great time. A fantastic excuse to learn some new API's and a new framework.

    This was an outstanding event. I purchased both of the applications that were shown in the lightening demos. (SendGrid and Twilio) There was a lot of energy in the building and I must say I gained by attending. I will attend all hackathons.

    This was a terrific event. Thanks to Jimmy for organizing and for hes attempt to help virtually everyone in attendance! I liked the AIPs and am purchasing both for my use. I wish I could have stayed to the end but prior commitments prevailed. Again, Thanks to All!

    I haven't experienced that level of nerdgasm since my last Notacon. Awesome job by Jimmy and the crew! Even though my end of the CanISprinkle app didn't get completed in time I now know about script.google.com.

    Does anyone know of any public APIs available for clark county or LV. I have been unable to find any with Google so far. I have also tried a few of the government sites and haven't found anything either.
