CodeDay Portland!

This weekend I attended my first ever codeday/hackathon. The event was hosted by StudentRND, and was at Urban Airship. This was the first time StudentRND has hosted an event in Portland, and it was awesome. I drove up with 2 friends from Corvallis to Portland on Friday, and Saturday we arrived at Urban Airship for a 25 hour coding marathon (Yay day lights savings time).
