CloudStock: Mini-Hacks and Videos

· Cloud Zone ·
Free Resource
The free CloudStock 2012 event in London is wrapping up today.  If you weren't able to attend, here's what you missed...


These are a really interesting alternative to the massive 'hackathons' that people are less inclined to commit to:

Instead of the usual all-day or multi-day Hackathon, we’re changing up the format a bit and offering a collection of “Mini Hacks” instead. There will be six challenges, each with a different technology focus and skill levels, that should take approximately 30 minutes if you’re working at your appropriate skill level. If you want to try something over your skill level, we’ll do our best to help you along. If you’re working way under your skill level, then well, as your mom might say “You’re only hurting yourself.” Cue the disappointed look from us.

The objective for these six Mini Hacks is to give participants a chance to try out developing with new technologies. We’ll have technical resources available to lend a hand if you get stuck, and you’re free to collaborate with others on your solutions as well. We’ll be giving away lots of great prizes for successful solutions, including Rokus and Jamboxes, among others.


Lots of presentations on real-time streaming of data.  There was a lot more than just this, but these videos are just a taste.

Keep an eye on this page to see when the next free CloudStock session will be.
