Turn Down For What, Hackathon Edition

Last night around midnight, just before a few hundred beers, and a few dozen pizzas touched down, myself and TechCrunch’s Kyle Russell took a stroll through the Disrupt SF 2014 hackathon.

Hackathons are odd things by the light of day, and even more so at night. Hackers were building everything from a rocket launching system — IFTTT for IRL projectiles, or some such — education tools, and more. The only constant was that before our shoot started, the room had a sustained, serious hum to it. We helped take care of that.

The teams are set to present in around two hours from now, so expect the fine folks you see above to be currently battling little or no sleep to get their projects done in time.

The best hack will walk away with a $5,000 check. May the best hack win!

Tickets to Disrupt are still available and can be purchased here.
