This week's Silicon Valley Web Builder
(SVWB) hackathon attracted a group of developers of different levels of experience in building social applications and set them on a course to create applications with OpenSocial. After some introductions, they group got its hands dirty by working through a "codelab
." At the end of the night, groups demoed the apps they built during the hackathon.
The event also featured a demo of hi5's OpenSocial container
running an application from KlickNation
that had been recently built for OpenSocial. It turns out they only spent about 20 hours to get it running on hi5, and porting the hi5 version to orkut took only 20 minutes.

for a look at some photos and "screenshots" from the event.
