Veterans Hackday 2011 -- Get Involved!!


Tomorrow is Veteran's day and this is always a special day for me as I'm ex-Army and have sons in the Army and Navy. If you want to give back to our Veterans, we highly encourage you to participate in LinkedIn's Hackday 2011.  LinkedIn and the White House are joining forces to encourage developers to hack together projects that improve veteran's lives.

We’d like to provide some extra incentive for you to become involved. In addition to the cool prizes from LinkedIn, simply submit an app for the Hackday and we’ll reward the first 20 submitters with $100. See our challenge for more details.

The Hackday starts tomorrow and winds up on the 14th so get going now! I've already started on my project (a mobile app on Heroku and Database.com) but if you need some ideas on what to build, take a look at these ideas or join the LinkedIn group. If you decide to build something on Force.com, check out this blog post for a way to get a free "i code" hoodie from the developer evangelism team.
