WhoHack #1

2011-12-29 @ Rijeka, Croatia

WhoHack #01 gatheringTo 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:
