Coming to PDF? Get Warmed Up With a Hackathon

by

PDF 2012 conference logoA bunch of the Labs team (and the rest of Sunlight) will be in New York next week for PDF 2012. It's one of the can't-miss events of our calendar year -- and not just because Sunlight counts Micah Sifry and Andrew Rasiej as close friends. PDF is a consistently great opportunity for like-minded folks to get together and share their visions for how technology can change society for the better. We've found more than a few team members at past PDFs; I don't think it's a coincidence.

This year the folks behind the event are trying something new: a two-day hackathon in the leadup to the conference. They're calling it PDF: Applied, and if you have talent for coding and a chance to make it to New York a little early, you should really consider attending. It's always exciting to see this kind of attempt to translate big thoughts into concrete action.
