hackairthon | bakeathon

hackairthon

A few weekends ago, the Airbnb engineering/product teams had their first official hackathon (or in this case, hackairthon), creating new projects from 6pm until 6am the next morning (in this amazing house).

I knew I wanted to be part of this but since I can barely manage my own HTML, I had to find a way outside the engineering the world to contribute.

Enter: baked goods.

In the midst of this hackairthon, I held my own bakeathon. I was only there from 9pm - 2am, but managed to make M&M cookiesvegan pumpkin brownies, funfetti cupcakes with homemade chocolate frosting, and this avocado chocolate cake. I was channeling my Stevenson glory days.

Oh, and just as I was pulling the last two items from the oven, a Mariachi band came to play in the middle of the night.

I really love being part of this community.
