When i was at university we would sometimes come together into a room full of beer and fast food and crank out software in a weekend. Unfortunately the group has kind of split up and its just not possible any more.

My question is now: Where can i find like-minded people on the Internet that would like to do something like this? I have an idea what i wanted to do next, but of course other people have ideas too.

+1 even though this question is off-topic, because I'm also interested in something like this. If you live in a small town, it can be really hard to find the like-minden people online. – Marton Nov 1 '12 at 10:20
I think people are rather using Internet for this, nowadays. You can send screenshots and other things pretty easily, and talk using Skype. – Markus von Broady Nov 1 '12 at 10:36
@MarkusvonBroady Yeah, but that takes away most of the fun ("a room full of beer and fast food"). – Marton Nov 1 '12 at 11:12
you can check out Game dev chat room. maybe you find some people interested in your project there. – Ali.S Nov 1 '12 at 17:54
shame this has to be closed for being OT. anyways, marton if you want contact me Maybe something can be worked out. I have never been to game dev chat. Are these guys nice to new people? – tarrasch Nov 6 '12 at 7:39

I suggest searching in Meetup for a relevant group. I'm a member of two groups that are local to me and focused on mobile development. One often sponsors "hackathons" like you describe for prizes.
