The Windy City Hackathon is Dec. 14-16 in downtown Chicago.
I've reserved and paid for 12 beds at the J.Ira & Nicki Harris Family Hostel, the Windy City Hackathon location. The hackation is free, but you if you want to stay onsite, you need to pay for your room soon to get one of the slots. It's a total of $115 for Thursday night through Sunday morning in hostel-style rooms. If you wait and have to get a hotel room, you'll pay more for that for just one night and still spend most of your time at the hostel. Pay for your room with a credit card through The Perl Review, or ask me about other ways to pay.
