The spring 2014 hackNY student hackathon was nothing short of AWESOME as over 200 students formed over 40 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: http://hacknymasters.com/, a midnight surprise of Wafles and Dinges, hammocks and lounge chairs for resting and relaxing, lots of food, free t-shirts, spontaneously given Droid squishables, and of course lots of hacking!
