In my last post I said, “The hackathon is a great place to learn a new feature but it’s not a hackathon. They expect you to have the app prebuilt before you get there.” I just want to be very clarify in this post.[Read More]
Knowledge 19 and what I learned
I was very lucky to get to go to Knowledge19. Now that it’s over, before I leave I want to jot down my thoughts. Of the labs, I attended I had no technical difficulty with the wifi or content. Others did, but somehow not me.[Read More]
Winning Hackathon Ideas
