Verb: building programs that solve everyday problems
A hackathon is a 24-hour event where students can either work individually or in teams to build a cool application - be it a game, a mobile application or a web application. Students who participate in the event - referred to as 'Hackers' - can use any technology to build their application.
HackColumbia kicks off at 7PM on the evening of March 1st. Students will begin the evening by listening to a series of API Demos from a variety of NYC Startups, and a series of API's about Columbia! Afterwards there will be a brief PitchFest where students can gather, pitch their ideas, and form teams to hack with. Then teams will have the next several hours to turn their ideas into realities. We will providing resources throughout such as food, coffee, and assistance from some great hackers, so that you focus on building something awesome.
At the end of the competition, the applications will be judged by a panel, and students will be given fantastic prizes for different qualities, like best design, best idea, best development effort, etc. Trust us, the prizes are worth the time!
Students from all corners of Columbia and all majors are eligible to participate.
