Code for Good Hackathon

Intel Galileo Pac-man game using Bluetooth

Over the past weekend I attended an Intel sponsored 3 days make-a-thon at Tech Shop in San Francisco, California. The premise of this is to make-a-thon was to make a wearable game by using Intel’s Galileo Development board and a wide array of sensors. Our project was to make a game similar to Pac-man.

The IUEE hackathon continues, & the students almost all have their apps in alpha.  They worked together very hard to get their apps to this point.  They used online resources to learn what they need & asked us facilitators when they got stuck.  Through their perseverance, they made apps that work for the most part.

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.

Contra Costa College - Intel - Student Code for Good Virual Hackathon '13 Behind the Scenes

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].

Contra Costa College - Intel - Code for Good Virtual Hackathon 2013

We are approaching another wonderful hackathon in 3 weeks. This one is named the "Virtual Hackathon". It is virtual in the sense that we will not all be in 1 building, but in separate houses working on different things. We will communicate to the other houses through the interwebs when necessary. Some of us members [including me] will be offering our houses for 3 days, from May 24 to May 26.
