AbeBooks’ 24-hour Hackathon at UVic has begun
AbeBooks is currently (and I mean right now) staging a 24-hour ‘Hackathon’ coding contest at the University of Victoria for computer science students. The event kicked off at 4pm and the teams will be working through the night before presenting their work to engineers from AbeBooks at 4pm on Saturday.
Good luck to all the contestants and I will have update on Saturday evening, along with some more photos. Anyone on the UVic campus this weekend should look for the bright red t-shirts worn by competitors and AbeBooks staff who are present to help out.
A number of AbeBooks engineers and developers are on hand – Tim, Cliff, Adam, Zach, Jonathan and Eric.
Here are a few snaps from the start.
