Calling all Interns for LinkedIn’s First Hackday Challenge

June 17, 2011

Ed. Some of you may have heard of intern rap battles in the recent past. We’re taking it one step further and are hosting LinkedIn's First Intern Hackday Challenge, where interns from across the country will battle it out to see which schools reign supreme.

Here’s more from Adam Nash...  

We’re thrilled to be hosting our first ever Silicon Valley-wide Intern Hackday.

From Friday, July 29th 7PM to Saturday, July 30th 7PM, engineering interns around the Bay Area will gather at our Mountain View headquarters and battle head to head for 24 hours to see which schools’ interns will reign supreme.

Will it be the local schools such as Cal or Stanford? Or will it be schools like Carnegie Mellon University or MIT that come out on top? I’m excited to find out.

We'll have guest celebrity judges picking the top hacks. Here's a sampling of the hackday prizes:

1st Place: Macbook Airs
2nd Place: IPad 2s
3rd Place: $100 Apple or Amazon gift cards

There will be plenty of food, inspired creativity, and unlimited supply of caffeinated drinks. Our own LinkedIn Hackdays have been an incredible showcase of ingenious creativity. I’m looking forward to seeing what the interns will develop in a 24-hour time span.
