Do you like coding? Not just mildly like it, but really, really like it? If you do and you're able to head to Sydney University this weekend, you could take part in a 24-hour coding frenzy. The Hackathon's open to teams of up to five developers, whether you're a professional code hack, keen amateur or university student keen to learn from your peers. It's sponsored by scientific publishing house Elsevier, who are stumping up the prize money. Top app at the end of the 24 hour period will walk away with $1500, with second place garnering $1000, and third place and the people's choice apps getting $500 each. Full details of how to enter and where to go are at the official site. [Sydney Hackathon via StartUpSmart]
