To those of us who work for API companies and spend more time on HackerNews than we do on Facebook, the ubiquity of hackathons may not be too surprising. But, as immersed as the Singly team is in hackathon culture, we were impressed to learn that 2012 brought 1170 hackathons – an average of 22 each week.
About 65 people came out for this day of hacking in New York, at The Alley coworking space. We kicked off the morning with bagels, coffee and API talks.
Just as our company mission is to empower developers, we believe it’s our duty (and know it’s our desire) to empower the people around us – including our trusted, talented vendors – in every way possible.
We work with a wide variety of vendors for lots of different projects. Recently, we worked with five highly talented videographers around the country to put together videos to highlight some of our key customers. Today, we’d like to take the time to highlight these individuals. If you have any needs for a videographer, feel free to reach out to them!
What did you enjoy the most about working on the Singly project?
This most recent project with Singly was intimately connected with my own journey. My wife and I raised 100% of our adoption costs through a non profit called Adopt Together. It was an honor being able to create awareness for Adopt Together. The fact that Singly wants to promote companies like Adopt Together and partner with them makes me think that we are on the same mission to create more good in the world.
|These are the hackathons we are tracking on at Singly. It looks like about 32 different events in the United States.
