137 developers, 48 hours, 27 hacks, 100L of Orange Juice, 150L of alcohol, 70 large pizzas, 300 croissants, 150 burgers, 200 sausages, 300 Kraft slices, 400 bread buns, 800 cans of Coke, 600 sandwiches and an unlimited amount of coffee from Pret A Manger. These are just some of the select figures from London Real-Time, the weekend long hackathon that GoSquared ran, along with support from Twilio, Pusher, Geckoboard and RabbitMQ.
We can’t do the event justice in a mere blog post, so here’s a wrap up of all of the daily wrap up videos (produced by Olly Newport of Keyone Productions), the blog posts and general media coverage of London Real-Time.
London Real-Time Daily Video Updates
Olly Newport, from Keyone Productions, worked incredibly hard over the weekend to bring daily updates of the previous day’s events at the hackathon. He essentially worked for 72 hours straight, continuously shooting and editing footage, to create three masterpieces which capture the emotion and atmosphere of the weekend perfectly.
Outriders: BBC Radio 5 Live
Jamillah Knowles from BBC Radio 5 Live’s “Outriders” captured the exhaustion of our attendees and organisers at the end of London Real-Time, after the demo afternoon on Sunday. She pieced together a 10 minute documentary into the event and delved into what made it so special.
The Next Web
Jamillah, in her capacity as Editor for The Next Web UK, also wrote two articles covering the event; both before and after the competition started.
PostDesk were our official media partners for London Real-Time. Sam England, Founder and Editor, attended for the full weekend; capturing interviews with attendees and organisers, as well as working closely with Keyone Productions to produce some awesome video coverage.
Milo Yiannopoulos, from The Kernel, attended London Real-Time as one of our guest judges (and chief burger flipper). He captured the ‘festival’ atmosphere of the event in his rather glowing report.
