The Hackathon is back at the European SharePoint, Office 365, and Azure Conference!  See more on the ESPC conference web page.

Got a project you've been meaning to get to, or a particular itch you'd like to scratch?  Or would you just like to flex your developer expertise to build something really amazing? Come join us for dinner and development at 17:00 on Tuesday, November 14th at the ESPC conference (The Convention Centre Dublin).  Even if you're just looking to learn and build your first SharePoint web part, it's a great time to learn and build something with all of the skills you take in from ESPC.


 At the ESPC Hackathon, we'll have key experts from across SharePoint development, ready to help you. Ask questions, bounce ideas, and develop your solutions with the experts!

Build something really amazing.  Stay late into the night building out your project. Come demo your project at our session at 16:45 on Wednesday, November 15th to compete for prizes.


NEW THIS YEAR: you can get started a bit earlier on your projects as well, starting Saturday, November 11th.  So get an early leg up on configuring your projects and building demos!
