GEEKS OF BERLIN!

Geekli.st is the new platform for building your geek identity based on your own achievements. Post projects, add contributors and technical details and receive high fives and comments from fellow geeks, building up your street-cred. Join the bad-ass developers who are already there by creating a profile at Geekli.st (http://geekli.st) (every participant will get invited into the private beta).

This Saturday we call the Berlin hacker community to meet and build awesome stuff with APIs in under 8 hours at the very first European Geekli.st #hackathon.

Location

ImmobilienScout24 will be our host and kindly allows us to use their ScoutLounge. It’s warm, light, provides more than enough space for us and is located on ground level, so smokers can go outside easily.

Food & Drinks

During the day we provide you with a stock of coke, water, beer and - of course - Club-Mate. We’ll also have some snacks as well as lunch - it’s all on Geekli.st.

What to hack on?

There are a bunch of APIs available for mashups, like
Twitter | Google+ | Facebook | SoundCloud | ImmobilienScout24 | Google Maps | Developer Garden APIs | Meetup | Readmill | Dropbox | Webintents | Mashery | ...
- use them or any other to build an awesome piece of software.

Oh, and one more thing: Participants of the hackathon will be among the first to get a sneak peak into the official API for Geekli.st.
