I went to the Yahoo! Open Hack day London last Saturday. I waited for quite a long time this event, and I’m pleased to say that all my expectations were fully met. A big number of Yahoo enthusiasts (and a guy with a Google T-shirt) arrived at the Congress Center early in the morning for a 24h session of hacking and fun events.
I was very happy to meet my ex Yahoo colleagues, seeing that they’re doing great even during hard times for the company.
I enjoyed mostly the talks about geo technologies and yql. I got so many ideas to implement in my iphone application:) In particular YQL is a very interesting technology that allows an application to query a number of Yahoo and external databases by means of restful requests.
