The fall 2013 hackNY student hackathon was nothing short of AWESOME as over 500 students registered formed over 50 teams to hack with NYC startup APIs over the span of 24 hours!  There were great API presentations from startups, an API 101 session hosted by Rob Spectre of Twilio, awesome technical talks in our Masters Series:, boxing and yoga hosted by Next Jump, hammocks and lounge chairs for resting and relaxing, lots of food, free t-shirts, spontaneously given Droid squishabbles, and of course lots of hacking!

Thank you to our awesome sponsors for their support of the fall 2013 hackNY student hackathon!
