I don't go to hackathons as much as I'd like, but when I do I've really enjoyed building some neat projects. I usually tend to visit hackathons that have either an education or social good focus, but I've been to all sorts of other events as well.
LAUNCH HACKATHON - 2015
In March 2015 I attended the Launch Hackathon. My team built an app that helped people participating in fitness activities such as marathons and fun-runs to sell their race passes.
HACK4GOOD - 2014
In February of 2014 I attended a hackathon called Hack4Good. The purpose was to build products and services that provided social good. My team built a mobile app that helped match young students with constructive after school activities. We won first place.
STARTUP WEEKEND LOS ANGELES - 2013
In May 2013 I attended a startup weekend in Los Angeles. My team built an app that helped people buy coffee based on taste preferences. I built the entire app from start to finish using PHP.
STARTUP WEEKEND SAN DIEGO - 2012
In June 2012 I attended a startup weekend in San Diego. My team built an app that helps people find events going on around them. We called it LocalWall. I built the front end of the application using HTML and CSS.
