Yahoo! Search is hitting the road and hacking at a university near you. Our University Hack Day tour, Hack U, offers interested students the opportunity to partake in a week of learning and hacking with tech talks, hacking tips and lessons, and hands-on coding workshops. From now till October 25th, we’re heading to six schools across the country and giving students access to APIs and tools in the Yahoo! Developer Network, including SearchMonkey and Yahoo! Search BOSS (at Stanford and Berkeley only).
We kicked things off at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign this week, where 40 students joined us for a day of monkeying with Yahoo! Search. We’ve already seen a bunch of great ideas from the UIUC students. Here’s a few photos from the SearchMonkey Brain Jam event on Tuesday. We’ll be sure to share some of our favorite hacks after the Hack U tour wraps up.
At Hack U, you can win prizes, a spot in the Yahoo! Search Gallery and a chance to represent your school at the University Hack Showdown in California in next spring. If you’re interested in participating or want more information on where we’re heading and when, check out the sign-up page. Past University Hacks are here as well.
