Submitted by Jimmy Jacobson on Wed, 03/28/2012 - 09:50

Friends, you were warned. Winter and Hackathon came and went, and while Winter was surprisingly mild, Hackathon was a blast. This was the first Zappos Hackathon to include a public contest for our friends at home to Hack-a-long with us.

We should have announced the winners a few months ago, but something happened that has delayed the judging. Without further ado, here are the winners of the Zappos API Hackathon Hack-a-long. Each winner will be getting $100 gift certificate from Zappos.

Congratulations to the winners and everybody who hacked, except those people involved in the incident and not the hackathon! I really like the Anonysize idea.
