Hack//Dining resulted in some interesting insights about the future of dining, as well as some potentially game-changing hacks. More than an event, this is about tackling big problems, so we want the teams to share what they’ve learned and get feedback from all of you as they continue development. And to help the winning teams keep their momentum going and / or share their experiences, we’ll be hosting 30 minute Google+ Hangouts with each of of them this Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Our goal with these Hangouts is to highlight the winning teams, their lessons learned and next steps. This is also a chance for our community to learn, share feedback and figure out ways to get involved with the projects.
To participate, all you have to do is RSVP by clicking “yes” in the Hangouts. For those of you who are super pumped about learning more but can’t view the Hangouts live, don’t worry, we’ll be posting them on Youtube, too, and you’ll be able to share comments there.
Descriptions of the wining teams are listed below along with links to their respective Hangouts. We hope you’ll join us for a Hangout or two and get to know our winners.
