Jackson-Reed Hackathon

Got time on Saturday?  Interested in coming up with solutions to solve real world problems?  Already know how to code or just want to get an idea of what it is all about?  Join the TigerHacks Team this Saturday, June 10th from 9am to 6pm in the Jackson-Reed library for our Hackathon.  There will be lots of treats, learning sessions and speakers.  Best of all – cool prizes for the winners.

Please note:  you do not have to know how to code to participate.  There is one prize for best idea/creative process.  Remember that the hardest part of creating new technology is figuring out what you want to create and how to create it right.  Being able to brainstorm and design an app, website or software product is just as important and sometimes more then the actual coding of the idea.

Sign up via tigerhacks.org.

What is a Hackathon?  For those who don’t know – you are generally given an area to create a solution for.  Past ones have been environmental tools and educational tools for JR students. Then, you brainstorm with your team or by yourself, design and create a final product.   They are fun and a great way to get excited about coding!
