The Event


Scheduling of speakers and the nitty gritty of what you'll be learning should be finalized very soon.  When it is, it will live here.



The 24-Hour Hackathon begins Friday afternoon. We encourage you to play around with Yahoo!’s Open Platforms and APIs like YAP, YQL, YUI, TVWidgets, our Social APIs, and more. And of course, feel free to use other APIs, developer tools and whatever software/hardware floats your boat. We would also love to hear your feedback on how we can make our developer services better. You will even have a chance to meet some of the engineers that built them.


At the end of the 24 hours, the hackers will have the chance to debut their hack and winners will be awarded with some enviable prizes. But more importantly, hackers win bragging rights until the end of eternity or the next Hack Day, whichever comes first.


And of course we will keep you well fed and hydrated throughout the two days. There will also be sleeping areas in case you want to take a nap.   


All our services are available at the Yahoo Developer Network including our latest open platforms such as

  • YAP (run your app on Y! home page!)
  • Social APIs
  • Pipes
  • GeoPlanet
  • YQL
  • Placemaker
  • Flickr
  • Delicious
  • YUI and more…

Sign Up for Free

Interested? Please sign up and tell us about yourself. Got a great idea for a hack that you know will wow the crowd?  Are you looking to lead a team, bring a team, be a one-man/woman show or show up and collaborate on the fly?  Do you have a blog?  Do you code for fun or for work (or both)?  Are you partial to one programming language?  Be descriptive!


Attendance is Limited

While we’d love to have everyone there, we do have space limitations, so we can accommodate approximately 500 people. We’ll be reviewing applications and giving preference to those we believe will best be able to contribute to the spirit of hack to make for a more interesting event for everyone. So please do tell us as much as you can about yourself on the application form


Please note that by registering here, you are NOT confirmed to attend the event. We will send “Open Hack Day Confirmed” emails to all the selected registrations applications.  So don't book your room until you get the confirmation from us.
