Sit back for a moment and reflect on just what the internet is and how it has affected you, your work, and the world at large. Feel the sweeping, awestruck sensation of there being a meta-universe that exists, not unlike the seemingly infinite neural pathways inside your brain (that picture, by the way, is not of firing neurons, but a visual fragment of the internet's interconnectivity.) Feel it? I hope so.
Today was the second week of the IUEE@CGCC in Chandler, Arizona. We are learning how to create an HTML 5 app from the business plans our teams formulated during our first week of the program. The format of the App Academy portion is that of a hack-a-thon.
While I miss having Hannah and CJ leading our group (WORD!!! CJ, Hi Hannah!) I am very excited for the chance to learn from Paul, Tom, and all the other App Academy mentors. I am very appreciative of this chance to experience this entire program.
We are in another Code for Good Hackathon, this one is part of the Intel Ultimate Engineering Experience [IUEE]. From June 10 - 20, Contra Costa College students fly to Chandler Gilbert College, a community college in Arizona. We are facilitating 2 separate hackathon there. In each hackathon group, there are 9 teams, each with about 6 people; there are around 120 people total in these hackathons. This is the 1st time we participated in a hackathon at this scale.

For being something new to all of us, doing this Virtual Hackathon last weekend varied between going very smoothly and throwing problems at us that no one expected. Just as everyone put a lot into hacking up project code, a lot went into making the Virtual Hackathon possible.
This was a great hackathon. We learned things we might not have without the hackathon. I know for sure I did. I was never able to setup Apache with PHP in the past because of reasons, but the hackathon had me tackle the problem until it was solved [for the entire 1st day].
