Node Knockout 2013

This weekend is Node Knockout 2013, the annual 48-hour Node.js hackathon, and we’re giving each team 12 free months of MapBox so they can build awesome geo apps. Teams will get the details in an email when the competition starts. We’ll be answering questions on support@mapbox.com and our public IRC room, #mapbox on Freenode. Just include NKO in the subject or let us know you’re participating.

We’re also throwing some cool stuff into the prize heap!

The winning team will get a Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 and full year of Premium MapBox service. We sincerely hope you hack the drone with nodecopter. Learn from our mistakes, and watch out for light posts.

The solo winner will get an Estes 1469 rocket, rated to 1,150 feet, and a year of Plus MapBox service. Winners in all other categories will get the Plus account and a pack of astronaut ice cream.

Good luck and make awesome stuff with maps.
