Reminiscing about the good old days at Yahoo, I’m enjoying watching again the “Hackumentary” movie that Ricky Montalvo made for the 2008 Open Hack day at Yahoo:
What if the world’s largest online media corporation opened its doors to “hackers” allowed them access to some of its most important features to see what they could create?
That’s what happened in September 2008, when over 300 developers descended on Yahoo!’s campus for an event that is every coder’s dream.
This first Yahoo! short film documentary will present the intense, fun and real-life Hack culture as illustrated by the Open Hack Day attendees. The short will show the lives of the participating hackers as they hack and compete in the ultimate in developer/coder showdown, discovering not only their obsessive “hack” habits and personalities, but also share what the developer community is all about.
