1st Hackathon of 2017!!!
On February 10th, CodeWorks held our first Hackathon for 2017! Our students were only 5 week into our Immersive Full Stack course, and worked together in groups to recreate Reddit with their own individual twists. One group even have a Pirate theme! ARGH!
For those of you unfamiliar with the term Hackathon, it is an event that typically takes place over a 24 hour period. It is solid code for the participants for the majority of that time. Students live on Mountain Dew, and Pizza, working together to build a website, full-scale application, or game, depending upon the challenge.
Our Hackathon started at 10 am on Friday morning, and ended Saturday at 10 am. Many students didn’t sleep at all, but each group had great success with their applications! This is a dedicated group! Can’t wait to see what they will build at our next Hackathon in 3 weeks!
