My Local Hack Day is basically a scaled down version of a Hackathon. At the event we as participants had to form teams, and over twelve hours develop and present a solution to problem presented by different companies sponsoring the event. The event itself was hosted by temple TUDEV club, a club of developers at temple, and was hosted nation wide by GitHub. The event was an amazing time and there were multiple seminars teaching and educating student about many different emerging technologies and trends occurring in the industry. We also had the ability to network with and learn from many professionals from some of the region’s best tech companies. I had amazing time at the event and actually picked on up a few coding languages that I still use today. I also had the pleasure of networking with many of the top companies in the region and learn about potential opportunities that exist at these companies.
