Want free beer and pizza while learning how to integrate Windows Live Messenger into your website? If so, and if you live in the San Francisco area, you should mark your calendars and plan on joining the Windows Live Messenger Hackathon taking place May 27, 2009 at Microsoft's offices on 835 Market St. in San Francisco. During the evening, which begins at 5:30 PM, you’ll learn from Messenger devs how to build a web app using Messenger APIs. The best implementations will then be eligible to win prizes which include an Xbox 360, Zunes, and other Microsoft hardware. All you need to bring is your codebase for a web app if you have one – if not, they can load a sample site with code for you.
