Join Twilio for Picture Perfect Hacking at Photo Hack Day 2

Following a stellar showing from the previous Photo Hack Day, Aviary is back with an even bigger agenda for their next photo-centric hackathon.

This weekend, Photo Hack Day 2 will kick off with two days of photo-friendly hacking and a special emphasis on mobile apps. As an added bonus, attendees will enjoy a fireside chat with some amazing NYC entrepreneurs, including the co-founder of Reddit Alexis Ohanian, CEO of the Cheezburger Network Ben Huh and the founder of Tumblr David Karp.

Join us on February 25-26 at the General Assembly in New York City for this epic event. Register for the event here, and make sure to reach out to Frank Denbow, who will be there to help with any Twilio questions during the hackathon.
