Did you know that we organize monthly hack events across Canada? Well of course you do! We just wrapped up our latest hackathon in Ottawa and it was a blast. Developers from Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto built some great applications. We had an awesome time so when Ilya Grigorik, PostRank’s CTO, offered to host the next hackathon, we glady accepted! So hackers, developers and awesome people: join us in Waterloo on Saturday April 9th, 2011 for HackWaterloo.

When: Saturday April 9th, 2011

Where: PostRank’s Headquarters (uptown Waterloo)

Time: 9 AM to 6 PM

The format is pretty much our usual hackathon format so consider this your call to register and secure a spot!

And if you have an API you would like to make available or know of a company whose API should be included in HackWaterloo, please drop us a line.
