WSOH - A few updates (and a new date! 7/22-23)

As some of you may already know, Mozilla is organizing its very first WSOH (World Series of Hack) this summer. Originally scheduled for Thursday 22nd/Friday 23rd, we decided to push it to Friday night instead to accommodate the vast majority of interns.

It will still be held at the Computer History Museum, and we now have a vast panel of participating companies like Facebook, Github, Dropbox, 10gen/MongoDB, Inkling, Flotype (now.js), TuneIn, and a few more to come.

Each participating company is submitting a theme/API and we will be releasing the full list on Github on July 10th. There will also be an "open category", which will be judged mostly on creativity and overall technical difficulty. Teams of 3-4 will be formed onsite.

There will be food, music, caffeine, snacks, games, and internet-famous engineers from across land to guide you along the way. We will also release the list of prizes on July 10th -- no matter what, it will be worth your hard labor! ;)

==> We have a limited number of spots (300), and we've already went through over one third of our available tickets since last Thursday!

There are 2 ways you can participate:
1. If you're a student interning in the Valley, please register yourself as an "intern"
2. If your company would like to be represented at WSOH, please email me at julie@mozilla.com

To register, please use http://wsoh.eventbrite.com

Disclaimer: We have a limited number of tickets so priority will be given to *interns* who've RSVP'd to the event.

Any questions? Please email julie@mozilla.com

We're looking forward to sharing such a great event with you!!!
