The next Metro Friday Hackathon is on the schedule.
Jim Blizzard ( Windows 8 Champ ) and myself are heading up an all day, sitnhack event on
May 18 at the Tampa office.
The past events have been very casual, heads down type, build or learn something events. If you want a day of coding with your fellow geeks, head on by. Send us an email
letting us know you're coming too.
