As we are a new company, we have been searching for oppurtunities to do some pro bono work to get our feet wet and build some work experience. Reading over that statement I realized that probably doesn't make a lot of sense without at least a glimpse at the big picture. Here goes nothing.
I am a developer at heart, I've been doing it since I was 11 years old and it has helped me provide for my family very well and consistently over the years, but for some reason, I just can't get enough of it. I mean I do it all, meetups, webinars, code camps, you name it I do it. One day my wife pulled me to the side and told in her best accountant voice, "Quit doing all this development for free, and monetize it.". So I decide to and just began this new startup with just me, my younger brother and my wife handling all of the business relations and boring money stuff..
Getting back on topic!
The City of Atlanta, lead by Mayor Kasim Reed and the Invest Atlanta team, have put together this great hackathon type event to help solve some of the Cities problems. Our three man team here at RHI signed up together and are definitely looking forward to bringing our flavor of development to the masses. If you are interested in participating, and the tickets are going fast, head over to their site at http://govathon.com.
