Yahoo HackDayIndia

Hackday was a fantastic event and i thoroughly enjoyed myself. Our Team H-U-B "Hack Ur Brain" did a good job. We used Yahoo Messenger SDK and SunSpot SDK and developed a small app , its a sort of Software - Hardware Hack because we used a device known as SUNSPOT and developed a app which notifies you if somebody pings you on your Yahoo Messenger. The notification appears on the SUNSPOT which is a wireless device which has an accelerometer, a temperature sensor etc.

Moreover, I had a great time with all the GEEKS/UBER GEEKS
who coded through the whole night. All the attendees were given away BEAN BAGS,Labels and T-SHIRTS...... and at the moment , i am blogging ,seated on the same BEAN BAG i was sitting on while hacking...! :)
