(1) The team get together for a hackathon, and to bid farewell to a special team member
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There was a bit of a flurry of activity in the third week of October as various members of the ProZ.com site team gathered in Syracuse for a second hackathon.

In addition, this hackathon included the site team's celebration of the impending retirement of one of its oldest members (in both age and in years working for ProZ.com), Enrique Cavalitto.
