The teaching staff of 3157 would like to thank all of you who came out to the hackathon. We all had a great time helping, teaching, and learning and hope you did too. The event was incredibly well attended and we were excited to see so many of you stick around to the very end. Happy hacking!
The 3157 Hackathon was an optional hackathon intended for students and alumni of the w3157 class. Throughout the night of October 25th, from 9pm-5am, in Carlton Lounge in Mudd, at Columbia students worked on two big assignments from the class. Alumni and TAs were on hand to help students with these assignments.
This hackathon isn't just a homework programming session, it's also an open learning environment. Whether you're a hackathon veteran or this is your first time, stop by. Representatives from Women in Computer Science (WICS) will be on hand to talk about their individual experiences in the field. If you're a Barnard student who would like to learn more about what its like to be a programmer, or what a hackathon is like, do come by as well.
Aside from all the awesome people, we'll also have pizza and drinks to keep you fueled all night, tasty treats from GitHub, 3157 swag, and swag from our sponsors!
