A motley crew of some 100 Web developers gathered at Taj Residency here for Yahoo's Open Hack Day, which made its first appearance in Asia over the weekend.
The one-day event on Friday attracted students, employees of software companies and even the unemployed, who toiled over 24 hours to create new applications based on Yahoo's application programming interfaces (APIs) and technology.
This was the third in a series of Open Hack Day held over the past year, and the first in Asia. Yahoo kicked off its inaugural Hack Day in Sunnyvale, United States, in September 2006, and held the second one in London, United Kingdom, in June this year.
