2017 Spring Hackathon
“We came up with this awesome game idea of something completely impossible and 20-some hours later we deployed it!”
“Mentors were superb. They would actually come up to your table and see what your success rate is and help.”
“This was my first time working on a team that was all women – and it was amazing!”
