Facebook Holding All-Night Hackathon Before Friday IPO

Posted May 17, 2012

Facebook is going to have an all-night hackathon tonight that will end when Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg rings the bell for their Friday morning IPO. The hackathon is an homage to the company culture that helped make Facebook become so successful. The all-night hackathon could lead to some products for Facebook’s 900+ million users. Unfortunately when Facebook goes public, almost every move the company make will be analyzed and watched like a hawk by Wall Street. They cannot afford to make mistakes like Beacon in the past without stock price repercussions.
