Congrats to Interactive Markdown at the TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon

Yesterday we were excited to see that Interactive Markdown, who used CoreOS on DigitalOcean, won runner up at the TechCrunch Disrupt hackathon. CoreOS was made available on DigitalOcean on Friday and come Saturday the Interactive Markdown team was building their application on top of CoreOS. From the TechCrunch Disrupt submission:

We set up a sophisticated CoreOS cluster on DigitalOcean to support live streaming of Android mobile applications via a highly optimized VNC dynamic reverse proxy directly to a web canvas. This streaming works on both desktop and mobile devices. We also set up a build process in docker to allow the running of numerous languages on a generic backend platform written in Go.

In just 24 hours the team had a working web application of Interactive Markdown, all built on CoreOS on DigitalOcean. Pretty impressive to get that going and present to an audience of 1,000 or so hackers in 24 hours. Congrats again to the team and go check out their TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon demo here:
