Show Off Your Hacking Skills At The SpeedHack13 Feb 2015
The SpeedHack is a fairly new hackathon format which is time-restricted to three hours.
Think of a it as a hackathon in undercranking mode."
Several API providers define some tough, strictly time-limited coding challenges using their APIs. Teams of developers compete to solve the challenges and increase their scores over a limited period of time.
The SpeedHack is restricted to three hours to keep the energy up. The team with the most points wins. In case of equal points, we there should be special tie breaking challenges.
We hosted the first SpeedHack at APIStrat Chicago and the feedback from everyone involved was so great that we repeated at APIDays Paris and now again here at APIDays+APIStrat Berlin.
