Working 24 Hours Straight at Solid Cactus – Programming Marathon

So, for those of you who know me, you know that I love my job. So much so that I am sticking around for the Solid Cactus Programming Marathon, or Program-a-thon as it’s been called, too. To get our client sites ready for Cyber Monday – the kick-off of the online shopping season, we held a promotion last week – anyone who signed on for a redesign or features by a deadline would be a part of this programming marathon.

I am writing this post as of 12:30 a.m. – made it more than half way through. There’s a few programmers and me left. A bunch of other staff stayed late as well. My role is just to be here to give away things and make food runs, and be the team cheerleader. So – figued I would share this pretty cool event with people beyond the Solid Cactus and eCommerce realm on my own blog.

Here are a few places you can go to read about the progress we’re making (or have made, depending on when you’re stumbling across this post:

Solid Cactus Blog – read posts about the marathon, see some video updates from our co-founder Scott Sanfilippo, and see a video of a coffee run gone wrong.
