Do you have some down-time this holiday break? Are you thinking about learning a new technology or want to hack on something fun during your vacation? Iron.io is hosting a week-long virtual hackathon starting on Monday, December 23rd, and going till the following Monday, December 30th. The requirements are very simple: build something useful, beautiful, informative, or just plain cool. Sounds easy enough, right?

We at New Relic like to reward innovation and out-of-the-box thinking, so we teamed up with our friends at Iron.io to sponsor the Holiday Hack and toss in a few fun prizes like a Fitbit Flex and New Relic swag. Other prizes include:

    • 1st Place: Lunch with the Iron.io team!, Quadrocopter!, Iron.io Hoodie
    • 2nd Place: Drinks (or coffee) with the Iron.io team!, a Sphero!, Iron.io Hoodie
    • 3rd Place: Raspberry Pi!, Iron.io Hoodie
    • Remaining Submissions: Iron.io T-shirt!

If you’re interested in getting involved with this Hack Challenge, see here to learn more, check out the rules, and get registered.

Good luck and happy hacking!
