Angelhack summary

What do remote control helicopters, Nerf guns, and sleep deprived techies all have in

common? Sounds like a hackathon to me!

Angelhack London was a raving success! Hosted in the impressive Bloomberg building, close to 250 hackers and 60 teams collaborated and hacked into the late hours of the night and early hours of the morning last weekend. There were some amazing products created during this hackathon, all which were presented in a lightning round, and the judges definitely had their work cut out for them. The winning team, titled “Penny” will be flown to Silicon Valley to compete in the Global Hackathon competition. If you missed out on this hackathon, never fear, Angelhack will be returning to London in May of 2013. Will you be there? We know Techmeetups will be!
