The first step is to open up your preferred text editor. Notepad++ is used here, but pretty much anything works.
The basic structure:
In conjunction with the Chesapeake Conservancy and the Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI), Old Dominion University’s Mitigation & Adaptation Research Institute (MARI) hosted a Code for Good hackathon under the White House’s Climate Data initiative. The project here was to design a system of low-cost water level sensors, aggregate the data to evaluate weather conditions, and provide useful services to the community.
A hackathon is an event where people get together and make things from scratch over a solid block of time. A codefest is a subtype of hackathon, focused exclusively on software development. A gamejam is a further specialized type of codefest, where the projects being developed are games. There is variance in the details and naming choices, but this is the general breakdown.
