The first PennApps Hackathon of 2013

Feel like telling everyone you know that you’re going and gosh darn it, they should go too? Join the facebook event:
So excited you can’t stand waiting til Friday night? Pop in to the How to Hack Facebook workshop tonight at 7pm in Berger Hall:
“We will go over the basics on how to build a website and how to build on the Facebook platform. The information is geared toward first time hackers but there are lot of good bits of information for you seasoned hackers as well. Facebook engineers Ryan Menezes (’11) and Lu Chen (’11) will be presenting and answering all of your questions. Bring your computer & your teammates as this will be an interactive session!”
