As a hackathon organiser, I think it's really important that we allow people to organise their own mini hackathons. So I built InstaHack.

Pretty simple runthrough

  • You press the "I want to hack" button. That's all.
  • If within 15 minutes, someone else wants to hack nearby - it creates a "instahack".
  • It then texts everyone each other's numbers, a link (and estimate) for Uber fare, an automatic GitHub repository setup with both of them set as collaborators.
  • Intelligently figures out who's better placed (based on nearby transport, how central they are, etc)

That's it. It should make hacking fun.
