Start Your Engines Last month a few of us at Calico decided to buy tickets to Vancouver Startup Week’s Hackathon. We wanted to test our skills in building something useful in a short amount of time. Once the tickets were purchased we then promptly forgot all about it. Fast forward and it was the Thursday before Vancouver Startup Week’s opening event and the Hackathon started on Saturday. Oops. As is tradition among developers and slackers everywhere, we put our heads down last minute and started to brainstorm an idea of something we could build.
