Day 1:

The first day started off with lots of fun at the Microsoft Innovation Centre in Hyderabad. I never actually had felt the environment around, as a Hackathon. Which Hackathon would actually start off with a guy who mimicked a 'premier guy', a bollywood-desi dance and a a Yoga stunts?

 Has anyone seen Deb without a camera strap round his neck? No, never! :)

Hackathon started off at 13:00 after lunch. People started coding and building Apps for different Operating systems like Windows, Blackberry and Android. We represented on behalf of HTML5 and Firefox OS and gave a brief talk on Firefox OS. Many volunteers had turned up and started questioning about Firefox OS.

We had few developer previews of Geekphones and a stable ZTE version of Firefox OS which were passed on among the hardcore developers. It's good to know that people felt really comfortable developing apps with Firefox since they do not need a third party application software like Visual Studio for Windows or Eclipse for Android.


Boot camps at Angelhack:

1. Android Bootcamp:





We had similar bootcamps on Windows as well as for Blackberry. It actually helped people how to start off.

Quite a large number of developers started off from the very scratch. This was a 48 hours hackathon. Find more sleepy- deepy pics here:




























After a day, we had to code all the night. People were really tired and then, we ought to know Redbull  was the sponsor :D

 Participant, coding at the AngelHack!


* We had a great chance to promote Firefox OS. Many were interested coding and developing apps on HTML.
* Proposals for two app days in Hyderabad.
* 5-6 Apps to be pushed into Marketplace too.
* Very good Inter-community relations were developed with the entrepreneurs and other organizations. Great to hear that offcially, AngelHack would be coordinating with Mozilla in cities like Pune, Cochin annd Mumbai.
