Here at Rackspace we are deeply committed to furthering the software development community. We love things like well-tested applications and vibrant open source projects.
One of the ways we engage in promoting a strong development community is with Hackathons. For the uninitiated, a hackathon is an event where developers get together and work on a particular technical subject for a defined period of time — usually with plentiful pizza and beer to grease the wheels of innovation. The outcome might be some amazing new tool or feature, or it could just be a good time with other like-minded people learning about the possibilities.
