I am a big fan of hackathons. I think they help promote the aspects of software development I most enjoy–creativity and problem solving in a collaborative atmosphere. My first hackathon taught me the basics of git, Flask, and applying concepts I learned in some of my psychology classes to create something someone could interact with. The TechCrunch hackathon in 2016 was something I had been looking forward to because I had two ideas I have been thinking about for a while, but had not really investigated or spent time developing on.
During one of our garage hacknights, my friends Pierre, Zhannar, and I decided to attempt to replicate this study introduced to us at the BCI Meeting conference. It was a great way to spend a rainy afternoon in San Francisco. Pierre was quick to make a write up, so I will simply copy the link to that right up Here.

He has a passion for opensource projects and understands their value and positive impact the opensource philosophy has on society. He is a man with many hats, and wears them all with gusto. I was very happy to have an hour of Conor’s time to talk about OpenBCI, EEG technology, Brain-Computer Interface technology and NeuroTechX.
