This weekend, the VoucherCodes.co.uk Dev Team put their heads together for a 2-day hackathon and we decided upon a project involving Twitter, and a certain well respected English poet and playwrite, Mr William Shakespeare.
After many discussions, designs, beers, pizza, and of course, code, we launched:
At it’s core, it’s about the Complete Works being reproduced by Twitter users posting their thoughts / rants / comments / etc. on the topics of the day, and those combined tweets recreate William’s words. Sort of like Inifinite Monkey Theorem, (not that I’m not calling Twitter users Monkeys).
I have to say I’m extremely proud of the team and what we’ve produced in such a short space of time. Looking at it in operation, it’s a fascinating reading though Macbeth and seeing a phrase recreated by a tweet on the subject of #ThingsNotToDoAfterABreakup or #ghettotranslations.
Take a look, and see what you think…
