This past weekend, myself and Anthony travelled to Boston for the LearnLaunch hackathon. Backed by LearnLaunchX and hosted at Coalition Boston, Pearson, Kayak, and co-sponsors ran a Travel and Education themed hackathon. After the initial pitches, the attendees broke off into nine teams of about 5 people. Everyone was super excited to get started. This felt like a different kind of hackathon. While there were many developers present, there were also lots of educators and business people. Many teams created sophisticated business plans, models, or sales projections.
