These grand-prize-winning teams will all get free trips to Facebook’s Menlo Park campus to meet with its engineers (and we’re pretty sure at least a couple of job offers may be thrown around, too).
Facebook’s Developer World Hack kicked off back in August as a two-month series of hackathon events for software developers. Each hackathon lasted a full day, and each team (or solo developer) had to build an app on the Facebook Open Graph, with the best apps winning the grand prize.
