This is probably the most detailed write up I've ever seen about running a hackathon. It has tables, graphs and lots of wisdom. Thanks for posting +E John Feig!
 
How to run a hackathon.

Finally, this is the big one, the super-detailed, 'How to run a hackathon.' post. This is 3/4 in my series on the recent  Pre-I/O Google Glass Hackathon that I ran. I included absolutely all of the information, data, and thoughts that I could think to include on this. I hope people find it useful.

If you're going to plan a hackathon, or a large, long event, you might consider this a good starting point, with some good advice. Sorry it's ridiculously long.

I thought all you had to do is leave your WiFi open and filesharing on.

+Kurt Mueller In regard to an emulator: We mentioned at I/O last year that this is something we want to do in the future, but that it's lower priority than a more mature API.

I wrote up some instructions for how to make an audio adapter for Glass.

This isn't new information. Once upon a time, I answered a Stack Overflow question about this very topic. But, my answer had a bit too much soldering for Stack Overflow. The question was closed, and it has since fallen from search and become difficult to find.

To make sure it's not lost, I copied the answer to my blog.

This is a great My First Hardware Hack!
You can also solder on a 100kΩ resistor instead of a 500kΩ to do mono instead.
If you short the ID and GND pins instead of using a resistor, you won't get audio, but the VCC pin will output 5V.

This is in just a few days! I can't wait to get to DC :)
 
I'll be leading a design sprint and participating in some Glass office hours next week in Washington DC.

Useful advice no matter what wearable screen you're building for.
 
Designing for wearables is substantially different than designing for phones or tablets: different strengths and weaknesses, different use cases, different ergonomics. The new Android Wear style guide provides lots of tips and pointers to get you up and running on these exciting new devices: information on contextual triggering, advice on how to lay out and style your apps, details of UI features like the context stream and voice actions, and downloadable templates and other resources to get you started. Check it out at the link below!

Our first Glass at Work Certified Partners

We’ve been searching for developers who are creating Glassware to help businesses reach their goals. We heard from hundreds of enterprise developers and today we’re excited to announce our first round of Glass at Work Certified Partners. Congrats to APX, Augmedix, Crowdoptic, GuidiGO and Wearable Intelligence. You can learn more about the Certified Partner Program and our partners here: http://goo.gl/EEwlTl

If you want to see some of the work our partners are doing, check out how Augmedix is working with Dignity Health so that doctors can spend less time on their computers and more time with patients: dignityhealth.org/glass

Yes, my hair is <insert some wild color>. I did that on purpose. =)

By day I'm a Developer Advocate. This means I help you build cool stuff with technology. By night, I spend my time split between roller derby, aerial silk, hacking all the things

I also really love science, especially space and astronomy.
