Internet Legend Paul Mockapetris to appear at Cloud.Community Hackathon

Inspiration comes in many forms. But how do you inspire coders and developers? You send in a rock-star coding hero!

Paul Mockapetris is best known as the creator of the Domain Name System (DNS), and he wrote the first implementation of SMTP — the Internet’s mail protocol. On Sunday, March 26th, Paul will join the coders on Day 2 of the Cloud.Community Hackathon to mix, mingle, talk shop, and encourage the coding teams during the afternoon. That evening, this internet legend will host a relaxed dinner with all the hackathon participants while discussing software and application development and answering any questions.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet and greet with one of the founding fathers of the internet. Click here for more information about the Cloud.Community hackathon.
