How to NOT write Java in the hackathon

Hey All:


As we reach the last two weeks of the hackathon, I want to follow up on my other email introducing Middleware products (ya gotta use one). We have heard that some people don't, can't, won't program in Java.

1. JDG (Upstream infinispan)

  • Establish your elevator pitch. In the first few seconds of your video, explain how your app helps travelers as outlined by your chosen competition category. You can get into the details of how it works later on…
