First global Dart hackathon announced
The Dart team has announced the first global Dart hackathon. The event will taken place between the end of April and the beginning of May in fourteen cities worldwide. Locations include Mountain View in the US (27-28 April), and London and Prague (27-29 April) in Europe. A date for the London hackathon has not yet been announced.
According to the official Chromium blog, the focus of the event will be to create client- and server-side web applications and libraries. Developers are expected to work in teams and, at the conclusion of the event, the winning team will be chosen based on the technical achievement of their application. The hackathon web site mentions "fun prizes" for the winning participants but does not include further details. The winning team members will also get a chance to talk to the Dart team via a Google+ Hangout.
The event is targeted at experienced software developers who, as Dart is currently a technology preview, will be provided with early access code. More information is available on the hackathon web site and interested parties can register for the event.
