BattleHack Global Hackathon!
Cross Campus Santa Monica
Feb 28 - Mar 1st

Here's an opportunity to get experience coding for an eBay inc. company, while also meeting many PayPal employees. Braintree - a start-up owned by PayPal - hosts an annual charity hack-a-thon. Tournaments are held in cities across the world, and at the end of February the tournament is coming to LA. See the organizer's description below:

BattleHack is a global hackathon series created to encourage and find the best hackers in the world. Our team hosts city BattleHacks ( 10-14 a yr) and crown a city winner based on an app (with a focus on social good ) that teams develop within 24 hours. All winning city teams are then flown to our HQ in Nov for our World Finals, once again creating brand new apps. We then crown 1 winning team with $100,000 USD and the title of the Ultimate Hackers For Good. Additionally, here are some quick hits about BattleHack:
