Hack Day cup, with Kung Fu Guy

When you peel back the layers at Yahoo!, the core of innovation is usually a small group of people building something they think is really cool. That's what we want you to do at University Hack Day: grab our stuff and mash it up.

Here are the dates for the 2007 University Hack Day season:

  • Carnegie-Mellon University: 9/28 (Kick-Off), 10/5 (Hack Day)
  • University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign: 10/5 (Kick-Off), 10/11 (Hack Day)
  • University of California, Berkeley: 10/19 (Kick-Off), 10/20 (Hack Day)
  • Massachussets Institute of Technology: 10/22 (Kick-Off), 10/26 (Hack Day)
  • Stanford University: 11/1 (Kick-Off), 11/2 (Hack Day)

We'll bring Maps, Search, Answers, Flickr, Music, del.icio.us, and all the rest of Yahoo's properties, documentation from the Yahoo! Developer Network, demonstrations from our very best engineers, loud music, all the food, drinks and Faceball you can handle, and 24 hours to make it happen.

Please visit the University Hack Day page for more details, including our 2006 overall winner, a recap of the open London Hack Day, and a brand-new How to Succeed at Hack Day list.
