I am considering PennApps, as it is rather big and I have connections with organisers there. Would you be interested in attending?

Hey guys!

I hope everyone's had a good day so far. In light of the recent hackathon phenomenon in the younger developer crowd, I think Fedora representation in this culture would give us a huge boost. Hackathons are similar to Fedora Activity Days, where large amounts of student hackers ("an enthusiastic and skillful computer programmer or user") gather to create innovative projects in a 24 to 48-hour timeframe. 

For instance, at PennApps (pennapps.com), students flock to the University of Pennsylvania for a 36-hour competition in which students create hacks, make new friends, and connect with sponsoring companies/organisations. Some past PennApps sponsors include Google, Facebook, and CIsco, but also numerous smaller startups such as Postmates or Quixey. 

The hackathon I am personally the most familiar with is PennApps. The next PennApps is going to be in September 2015, so we still have some time to plan. I haven't created an event page yet due to undecided details, but I will in the near future. Sponsorship amounts are negotiable, and I've already gotten in touch with organisers.

Are any FamNA ambassadors interested in attending a hackathon if we end up sponsoring one?

TL;DR: We should sponsor a hackathon! Who's interested in attending, if we do sponsor one? Suggestions welcome!
