Build Something Awesome: ODTUG GeekAThon

Brian Marshall

I included the content of this post in my Week In Review, but I think it deserves a separate post altogether.  ODTUG GeekAThon is the first contest of this type that ODTUG has conducted, so let’s make it a success.  This way we get more contests, more awesome ideas, and more prizes.

So what’s this contest about?  I don’t want to re-cap the entire GeekAThon website, but essentially they want you to build something out of the Beacon that you received at Kscope16.  Using the Bluetooth Low Energy technology of the Beacon…solve a problem.  Then show us how to do the same things.  Go check out the site to find out more:
