The Final Countdown

We're leaving together,
But still it's farewell
And maybe we'll come back
To earth, who can tell?
I guess there is no one to blame
We're leaving ground (leaving ground)
Will things ever be the same again? It's the final countdown
The final countdown   -- The Final Countdown (Europe)

I have participated in many Hackathons. In almost every one, I find the last few hours to be the most exciting and intense. It's when the mind signals that it's crunch-time and the body responds with an intensity you didn't know existed within you. All distractions fade into the background and you enter this zen-like state where the goal is clear and you become laser focused. It's just you and your project, in a battle against time.

Time will continue its relentless march but you will prevail. You will get it done, because that's what Hackers do. We find a way, and against the odds, we make it happen.

There are 43,200 seconds to go before the WhenHub Hackathon ends. I hope every second brings you good progress, and wish you much success. Thank you for participating in this competition.

Make it happen!
