SXSW was pretty awesome. Total geek out. I have to go though all my notes, but it was very good. Meeting Brian Holt from Reddit was definitely the highlight, and went to two hackathons, first the Hackathon For Social Good, and then Slashathon! It was pretty cool. Event was held at Capital Factory in Austin, and the place was gorgeous. We had a plane to catch, but I kept coding in the airport… final product looked like this: Groupieology. SeatGeek’s API is pretty amazing: it requires no API Key, unlimited and very eimple to use. Including the Baseball Hack Day the Saturday before, it was my third hackathon in 10 days. My buddy Kevin Davis was a good sport and attended all three with me. Pretty crazy stuff.
Have not had a chance to use it, but this service, import.io sounds really cool. I need to check it out and see if I can use it for some hacks in the future.
