What is an "Ideathon," you may ask? I like to think of it as part hackathon, part unconference, part user group, part great food and fabulous prizes. Whatever it is, we're throwing one in a few weeks because we'd love to meet local developers - whether you've worked with one of the Google Data APIs in the past, or if you just want to learn more about it. We're opening our doors at the Googleplex (Mountain View, CA) Thursday, December 13th, 5:00pm-10:30pm to anyone who wants to spend their Thursday night hanging out with the Google Data team.
Besides a short kick-off session, everything else will be up to you. We'll provide the wi-fi, power and food, and you can utilize the time however you want -- whether it's to pick the brain of someone on the Google Data team, meet other local developers, hack away on your current project, sit in on impromptu sessions about things like Google Data + Gears and GME, or hold your own lightning talk about the project you're working on.

Not in the Bay Area? This is just the first of such events, so we'll try some more exotic locales in the future :) If you're interested in having one in your area (or even hosting one!), let us know at [email protected].
Hope to see you there!
