Hack Day 2016 at  AAS 226 in Kissimmee, Florida

When:  Proposed for Friday , Jan 8 2016 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM

Where: Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center


We are asking and expecting all Hack Day participants to plan on staying for most of the day.


Registration is encouraged to facilitate pre-meeting coordination, but if you didn't register you're still more than welcome to participate in the Hack Day.


What is a hack day?

We are going to get together to write code or work on some other project, fast. The idea is to design a do-able project and fully execute it in one day. Or at least go down trying. Come with a project, or come with deployable skills, ready to deploy.
