Destinations - KAYAK Hack Week Project 2012

One of the cool things about working at KAYAK is hack week. One week out of the year employees take a break from their regular duties to work on a fun project of their choosing. It is a great opportunity to work on something different and with people you might not otherwise work with. At the end of the week each group presents a short video describing what they did.

Last year I worked with Mike Bernardo, Ben Peebles-Mundy, and Stewart Ulm. We built Destinations - an iPhone app that lets you browse the vacation photos of your Facebook friends. It was a blast working with these guys on it. In just four days we had a working prototype and on the last day we produced an Apple-like commercial for it. I was super proud of the work we did on this one. Check out the video.
