The 2012 Veracode Hackathon officially kicked off this morning and while most of our coverage of the event will come later this week and next week I wanted to give everyone that was curious a quick glimpse into the event.

The event starts over a free breakfast of donuts and bagels and while participants are welcomed t-shirts are also distributed (pink was especially popular among the men.) Shortly there after our research space is transformed into a 24 hour disco club complete with laser shows and our custom mobile media console.

Participants then break up into teams and start tackling any of the many projects that have been posted up around the office space! The Hackathon runs for 3 days with employees granted the entire day to work on whatever they like as long as they can report their findings at the conclusion of the event.

In his spare time you'll find him drinking the CrossFit kool-aid, getting overly competitive in a video game, or doting over his lovely wife and daughter.
