Attention developers and entrepreneurs. Lighthack! is a new hackathon event series that pairs entrepreneurs with developers…. and accelerates their ability to build products rapidly with Lightning Platform. Think LEAN start-up meets hackathon meets founder matchmaking. Tonight is a BBQ and beer for curious devs to learn about the upcoming hackathon and what our software actually can do!

Nathon showed me the Lightning Platform earlier this year. I found it pretty intriguing’; it’s got a lot of the functionality in Parse, plus even more goodies that make it simpler to get better usage analytics and demographics from your user base. If you’re building community, social, game-based, or some other type of multiuser sites or applications and need a good back end and analytics, Lightning might be right for you. And I know that a BBQ and beer is definitely good for you. So c’mon down to their event tonight and find out what Nathon and company are up to!
