Hack Pitch @ BuzzFeed Tech Talk

Howdy y'all,

I hope you had some time to rest and recuperate from the long weekend. We hope you enjoyed your time at BuzzFeed. We look forward to hosting many more career-driven hackathons in the future and welcome any suggestions you may have. Email Vid <vvt216@nyu.edu>, Alex <alexandracardinale@nyu.edu>, Fannie <fp631@nyu.edu>, Drake <dad499@nyu.edu >, or Puneet <puneetjain@nyu.edu> with your suggestions. 

Assemble your team at BuzzFeed next week Tuesday, April 28th, at 5:00PM at BuzzFeed HQ(200 5th Ave), to pitch to the technical team. You're free to add more features to your hack and build it into something much more tangible.
