What’s happening?

We’re kicking off the two-day event starting Saturday 21 of November with a series of Tech Talks covering a wide range of topics led by some of the Web’s most respected developers. We’ll then dive into 24 hours of hacking on our very own collection of tools, Yahoo!s Open Platforms, APIs, and data, and end with awards presentation.

So, don’t wait any further! Sign up for a Hacker ticket now and be the pioneer batch of Hackers at the Yahoo! Southeast Asia Open Hack Day! If you are only interested in our Tech Talks you can sign up for the Tech Talk ticket instead.

Due to space limitations we are only opening up this event to a maximum of 200 participants therefore don’t miss this opportunity! Sign up now!

The 24 hour Hackathon

The 24-hour Hackathon will kick-off right after the tech talks. We encourage you to play around with Yahoo!’s Open Platforms, APIs and newest releases such as Blueprint, YAP, YQL , YUI3, and more. And of course, feel free to use other open developer tools. We will also be joined by hackers from Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam. At the end of the 24 hours, the hackers will have the chance to debut their hack and winners will be awarded with some enviable gadgets. But more importantly, hackers win bragging rights until the end of eternity or the next Hack Day, whichever comes first.

And of course we will keep you well fed and hydrated throughout the two days. There will also be sleeping areas in case you want to take a nap. If you want to HACK AND LISTEN to the Tech Talks on the Saturday morning, please register using a Hacker ticket.
