Hack.mv crew join us today to talk about the event.
hack.mv is a hackathon event series. It is a non-profit movement by a group of individuals from the software development community in Maldives.
Like all hackathons, participating developers come together at a predetermined location on a designated day and spend a stretch of time working on a project and, hopefully, end up with something cool to show.
Mohamed Maail(@maail) is a talented freelance web designer/developer. We talked about his awesome startup tiwiii.com. Amongst other topics, we talk to maail about taking the plunge and starting your own business/startups.
