Last week, Quick Left hosted our critically acclaimed Hackfest - a gathering for Boulder and Denver's brightest developers, designers, and tech enthusiasts - and this month's theme 'Beerfest' had them pulling out all the stops. Not only did one team hack whilst brewing a delicious stout in the office--letting me contribute to the brew by throwing in a dash of hops--all teams presenting had amazing (and marketable) ideas coming to fruition in only 3 hours of development. Keep reading to find out who took the victory for Quick Left's Beerfest Hackfest. It's a nail-biter.
Twas the day before Christmas and all through Quick Left, all the developers were stirring making lots of pull requests.
Everyone was furiously hacking in hopes that the internal hackfest victory would be theirs. But that didn't stop us from putting the semicolons in with care.
"On Vinny, On Matt, On Laura, On Mike. Now Alex, Blair, Jennifer, and Ben. We don't have all night!?"
"On Bob, On Doug, Go Brent and Dave. Now Hargobind, come on, Ingrid and Rachel must judge and give prizes to excite!"

How has it taken us so long to host a beer-themed hackfest!? And what better month to build an application about our favorite accessory to code than....STOUT MONTH. That's right geeks. Not only do you get to participate in your favorite activities with your favorite hosters of the hackfest, you get exclusive previews of beer data from our sponsors and swag from Boulder's best breweries to boot if you win. You'll also be enjoying food and fine beverages from one of our favorites West Flander's Brewing Company. And for those non-coding types, we'll have the Brewers Association in the house sharing all the secrets about homebrewing throughout the evening with you.
Quick Left and Locksport International are proud to announce a partnership built to host the most exciting hackfest since...Sandals 2: Electric Boogaloo. Brace yourselves as we bring you the magical world of locksport. Locksport is about the competitive picking of locks and features a need for knowledge and understanding about how the things around us work. You see, locks are just like mechanical puzzles. Our favorite saying is "picking locks is like doing a Rubik's cube in the dark." If you like puzzles, you'll love locksport. We already know you love the QL Hackfest, so you should go ahead and sign up now.

Also, if you can't get the chance to attend DEFCON, get that experience in a nutshell at our event. Who: Anyone who is looking to learn a bit more about locks and enjoys solving puzzles. Cost: This event is free as are all of our hackfests.
