Over 700 hackers signed up and over 400 stayed the night in order to come up with over 130 hacks at this year's TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon SF. Fueled by Doritos and RedBull among other things, many ambitious developers coded at the SF Design Center Concourse Exhibition Center until 10:00 am this morning, taking to the stage bleary-eyed at 11:00 am in order to present their accomplishments in 60 second spurts.
The top six Hackathon teams chosen by our select panel of judges will have the opportunity to present at TechCrunch Disrupt on Wednesday. In addition there were a plethora of sponsored prizes given away, from TechCrunch Disrupt API sponsors Ford, Mashery, DOAT, Face.com and Eventbrite and others. Most notably, CrowdStar and Sibblingz teamed up to each offer $250K in funding for exceptional attempts at creating mobile social games.
Salesforce's VP of Open Cloud Standards Kevin Marks, Google's Rohit Khare, Betfair's Vice President of Mobile Engineering Raj Vemulapalli, OneTrueFan founder Eric Marcoullier and Ask.com's Director of Engineering, Mobile and Platforms Vishal Shah mulled over the merits of everyone's 24 hour efforts and came up with the six most worthy.
