Thursday - September 13th - Hack Day


Hypermedia Hacking

The goal for this year's Hackday is to build many small systems on top of a specified media type for customer support tickets. Basically, we will be building a set of components that, when put together, form a help desk software and related functionality.

For example, one team might write a server side storage, a second team a GUI client, and a third team a Twilio integration.

The point is to experience the merits and pitfalls of interoperability as provided by a Hypermedia type.
