Weekend Apps 0 Comments

Yes, that’s right: 11 Facebook Applications were demoed to a big audience on Sunday night, and it was a great evening. Some teams came on Friday with an idea and a partly written app, and others came without any expectations, met others in the weekend, chose an idea and fully implemented it and launched it in 36 hours (well, some teams worked way beyond midnight, and so they got more than 36 hours).


Overall, there was a lot of excitement, and also stress to meet the deadline. But it was fun. Here is a list of the applications that launched this weekend:
