Just like the first time, everybody gathered in caffe bar Fusion, right next to the hackathon classroom. Drinks and snacks were free but to our surprise, not consumed as much as we expected. There was a problem with ideas again, we need to think of a way to help you find a great idea to build on WhoHack #03; maybe prepare some cool but easy to build list of ideas and post them on a wall (a physical one).
We had somewhere over 15 people (developers and non-developers) working on something. Check the gallery and some of the projects below:
made by Edi Budimilic & Dino Budimilic with some help from Marin Usalj

That’s it! We have some more apps done by other developers but no files or websites to show. Keep following us! Sometime before the summer kicks in we expect even more developers on WhoHack #03 with sponsors and maybe some gifts for the winners. Cheers!
We are announcing the second WhoHack hackathon organized by WhoAPI startup.
New hackathon but everything different; what’s much more interesting this time is the theme of the event and the openness. Yes, this time WhoHack is open for everyone, actually up to 42 ninja developers :) and don’t worry about getting thirsty or hungry, we have you covered all day with free snacks, drinks, lunch and supper.
All the finished projects will be published on whohack.com, promoted via WhoAPI Blog and some domestic media. Best projects will be awarded!

To put it bluntly, It was pure awesomeness! :) Everybody gathered earlirer than expected in caffe bar Fusion, we discussed various ideas we wanted to build and once we decided - hacking started as scheduled.
At first, up to noon, It seemed like there’s no way to finish what we have set to do but after we cooled down with the geekish talks you could hear only the sound of keystrokes most of the day. Don’t forget to check the full gallery here. To keep this short, here are the finished projects:
