TechCrunch Hackathon 2016

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.
