This weekend I will be at the hackNY hackathon at the NYU Courant Institute from 2PM until 2PM. I went last year, but didn’t really know any of the technologies that were being used there, and I ended up not collaborating or presenting anything. But being there set me on a path of learning web programming and becoming more confident in my own abilities, so today/tonight I’m going to shred all over the place on this hackathon. It won’t know what hit it. Hopefully I’ll be able to join a team and work on some part of an awesome project with them. That all depends, we’ll see.
I’m taking pledges for Mountain Dew. You tell me how much you’ll donate per can, and then tonight, I’ll keep a record of how many cans I drink, and then you donate the amount that you pledged. It’s going to be a marathon. A hackathon, if you will.
And I’ll be live tweeting it, probably. Watch me <a href=”http://twitter.com/#!/emmett9001″>@emmett9001</a> because I’ll be very silly and working hard. Probably learning lots of cool stuff.
I will see you all on the other side. Wish me luck!
