Yahoo! Developer Network evangelists, including one Georgia Tech alum and one Chick-fil-a lovin' son of the South are joining forces with the Hack U crew for the third of our Yahoo! Open Technology talks, Thursday night in Atlanta. This event takes place at Georgia Tech's College of Computing as part of a weeklong program of coding workshops and tech talks that Yahoo! offers to computer science undergraduates.
Hack U gives us at the YDN a chance to meet up with students, help with the hacking, and see how the next generation of developers responds to the stuff we're building at Yahoo!. It also gives us a chance to invite folks from the local developer community to learn about Yahoo!'s developer tools.
