Last week at the fourth Open Compute Summit in Santa Clara, we held the first-ever OCP hardware hackathon. In just nine hours, a group of about 70 hackers generated seven really interesting hardware designs — all of which could now be turned into physical products that are ready to plug in and power up.

Have a great idea for innovating data center technologies? Then join us for our second-ever hardware hackathon[http://upverter.com/hackathons/open-compute-gigaom-structure-2013/apply] on June 18, 2013, at the GigaOM Structure conference[http://event.gigaom.com/structure/?utm_source=cloud&utm_medium=editorial&utm_campaign=intext&utm_term=645498+gigaom-teams-up-with-facebook-for-a-june-open-compute-hardware-hackathon&utm_content=shigginbotham]. Your idea can win a $10,000 prize if it's best positioned to become a venture-backed startup.
More than 60 hackers came from across the country and around the world to the Facebook campus this week to hack hardware designs at the second Open Compute Hardware Hackathon. The winning entry, a mesh network debugging tool, was announced at the GigaOm Structure conference and the team took home $10,000 in seed funding to further develop their project.
