It’s a Beerfest Hackfest – January 29

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.

So just what is the evening's challenge, you inquire? You'll be building a beer-themed application in three hours or less. Any language, any device, any idea. Integrate feedback from our sponsors and you get bonus points. The winning team will take home a Boulder brewery package complete with brewery swag, beer, giftcards and get comped memberships to the American Brewer's Association!

As per the hackfest code of ethics, come hungry, thirsty and ready to code at 6 PM sharp. Coding begins at 6:30 and teams form night of. No previous feature designs, all code must be created during the hackfest.
