Empty energy drink cans piled almost as high as Internet app ideas as First National Bank's “Code 1” computer hackathon drew to a close.
Internet developers from as far away as Brazil descended on the Omaha bank's glass-enclosed Winter Garden to spend 48 hours working on a new banking app. A $10,000 prize will be awarded Oct. 10 to one of the 12 three-person teams in the competition.
