Yahoo! Hack Day


Tomorrow is Yahoo!'s first open Hack Day. They've previously had company wide hack days, where employees spend a day hacking away on projects they want to work on, typically using APIs or other internal libraries to create a project outside the typical work tasks.

Kinda like a corporate BarCamp, or Super Happy Dev House. Speaking of, the next SHDH is November 4th, which is the day before Kris and I head off to Australia.

I'm looking forward to the event very much. Even if I do have the feeling it may become a subtle Yahoo! recruiting effort. I mean, what better way to find talent than by inviting hackers over and watching them work?
