BEA Day 2 Highlights - Hackathon winners and more
Below is a photo of Publishing Hackathon winners Team Evoke. They won $10k for developing a discovery platform based on story characters. Great job by Perseus and Librify that brought excitement, technology and new opportunity to BEA.
Other highlights include the biggest author breakfast ever with 1,400 people.
The live streaming has had 2,000+ people watching events live.
Not sure who stole the show more today, Grumpy Cat or Jim Carey - both rocked!
