I don't want to steal the thunder from the Global Game Jam because that is going to be an awesome weekend, but I wanted to make sure everyone knows about GlobalHack.
On 1/31-2/2 LockerDome (http://lockerdome.com/) will be hosting the first quarterly hackathon for GlobalHack, right here in Saint Louis. Unlike traditional hackathons, all teams will be working on a single project - a prototype for TopOPPS, which is Jim Eberlin's (successful serial entrepreneur) new startup. The winning team will receive a $50,000 acquisition offer from TopOPPS for the prototype that they build over the weekend.
The project is language agnostic, but it will require some integration with Salesforce.
Since the project is not intended to carry past the weekend, this could be a good opportunity for folks that want to keep their day job to show off their product chops and perhaps even win $50,000 in cash for just 48 hours worth of work.
Interested? Check out the following resources to learn more:
Also, don't miss the Global Game Jam. That weekend might be the most fun you ever have (outside of other Game Jams of course).
