Do you have what it takes to enter the EMU Hackathon?

Do you have what it takes to enter the EMU Hackathon?

Presented by Extended Programs and the College of Technology’s Computer Science Department

If you’re a programmer at any level and you’re ready to test your skills, Hack-a-thon is for you. Join other EMU students to find solutions while networking and showing your skills to corporations in search of interns.

It all starts in Pray Harrold where you’ll work in a team to solve a problem you’ll be given by event organizers. You’ll have around 24 hours—Saturday, October 10 at 11 a.m. to Sunday, October 11 at 3 p.m. to write a program to address the problem. Top teams will be awarded prizes like raspberry pi systems and 32GB flash drives.

Grab a team of friends (five students max.) or register as an individual and we’ll find a team for you.  You can choose the difficulty level as you register. This event is open to EMU students of any major, but space is limited to 75 students, so register now.

Hackathon was started by Domino’s who originally suggested it as a recruiting event, but it has really grown beyond that with the help of students and professors from both the Information Assurance and Computer Science departments. Students should sign up by Wednesday at http://www.emich.edu/extended/online-offcampus/splash_pages/hackathon.php
