.. where Ikea goes to garage48 demo event

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

guess what? last weekend something fun happened in Tallinn and it was called garage48. i have to say that we, giraffes, don’t know much about garages usually, but apparently it was not in a garage at all. in fact, it seemed like it was in a restaurant of some sort, if u ask me. but i know from my friend Angel (he knows these things) that this event was not about cooking, it was about music. and it was a hackatlon. i’m not exactly sure what it means, but it’s a lot like running, except instead of running you do programming. and some other fun things like marketing. and if you do it over 48 hours, that’s like a marathon running. i like running a lot, u know! but i can’t tell u for sure, because when i got there, most of this hackatlon-ing was already done!

instead, there were presentations. they call these presentations “demos” and apparently they (the teams) have 3 minutes to explain what they have been doing last 48 hours. and the best one gets a diploma. so it’s a lot like the Olympics. Except that u don’t need to do a presentation there, i’m afraid! so, as u can see i took a couple of fotografs only because later, when i was planning to make more the projects got very much fun.. so i didn’t! but check out the projects! my favorite is SongBoutique, because i have really been looking for a nice song to send my friend Sipsik for her birthday..

well, in fact, i need to go check if they are in itunes already. so, until then, let me know if you have been to any hackatlons recently? have fun and cu l8r!
