Tom Coates recently announced the news I’d been dying to share: Yahoo! will be hosting an open Hack Day in London this June.
And, as with last year’s event here in Sunnyvale, this will be free, open to (and expressly for) non-Yahoo! employees, and provide a 24-hour, beer-and-pizza-fueled social environment within which folks can build and demonstrate unique product ideas and enhancements. Unlike last year’s event, though, this one will be held in a palace overlooking London.
The whole YDN team will be there for the event, as well as a number of US- and UK-based Yahoo! folks. I’ll personally be in London Wed, June 13, through Sunday, June 17, so if you’ll be there too (or happen to live there), drop me a line.
But most importantly, come out and make something.
