Are you ready for the HACKATHON?
How many times have you muttered to yourself: “Man, I wish someone would make that app.” Well, stop muttering and go do it!
Students from all over the college will be jazzed up on caffeine this weekend as they group brainstorm and crunch code for the 48-hour Mobile Apps Hackathon, and one of them could be you. It’s totally free and open to any U-M student - you don’t even have to tell them your coming.
Here’s who comes: Anybody and everybody who is interested in mobile apps, with or without an idea, a team or any experience. (So that means you)
Here’s how it works: Pitches will be made, teams will form around the pitches, everyone will be placed on a team, then code will be crunched.
Here’s why you should go: The Hackathon gives students the time, space, food, caffeine and teammates to build any mobile platform - regardless of your experience. As one previous Hackathoner said: “I learned more in 48 hours than I learned all semester!”
Here’s the details: The Hackathon will be in Design Lab 1 at the Dude starting at 6pm on Friday, Sept. 28 and ending at 6pm on Sunday, Sept. 30. No registration necessary - just show up!
This year’s Hackathon is organized by Professor Elliot Soloway and sponsored by Walmart.
