HackGT, Georgia Tech’s amazing annual hackathon in Atlanta (or “Hotlanta”), wrapped up this past weekend following a great showing of hacks and hackers. Featuring over 1000 student hackers and, for some reason, bear overlords (pictured above), the hackathon featured prizes of over $150,000 in value.
“PickMeUp” walked away as the winning hack.
Here’s a round-up of the best tweets from the weekend:
