Super Happy Dev House
Originally started in Silicon Valely in 2005, SHDH is an all day and all night hackfest and party that combines serious and not-so-serious productivity with a fun and exciting party atmosphere. There’s beer, food, fun projects, lightning talks and much more! The previous two all-day all-night hackathons were unmitigated successes: projects were developed, and new collaborations were formed with developers and programmers.

From now till Oct 19 we are looking for the best ideas that can marry web/mobile and social change.
