Here are some of the projects that we've created from scratch in the DataSift labs and released as open source software.
We run Hackathon's several times a year where engineers have an opportunity to pause for a day and work on projects of their own. Send a Tweet to @DatasiftDev if you'd like to visit us for a day and participate. Pizza lovers only!
