Recently, I’ve been going to a lot of Hackathons. Now if you’re not familiar with these events, I like to think of a Hackathon as a sort of geek’s playground where solutions to everyday issues are hacked on. Of course, to make all this happen, it’s a matter of working with APIs from all sorts of different vendors while maintaining a fun environment for the hack teams.
The last thing I like to do on a weekend is go somewhere and be bombarded by a sales pitch. I’m thinking the rest of the folks at the Hackathon feel the same way, so we decided to promote ourselves a little differently than some of the other attending sponsors. We figured this would be a ‘good call’… kinda like using our Managed DNS and Email Delivery APIs in the first place.
