Some time ago, I got a message. It was from a friend, an attendee of one IUEE13 workshop in Sacramento, which was a programming workshop that I helped facilitate. The message said: "hey Edward! How's it going? I'm at the Sacramento Hackathon.
During the second weeks of IUEE in Portland, Oregon we got a chance to go through "app academy". In this 2 week session we got to get exposed to many new programing languages as well as different functional for them. We were arranged in groups prompted to create a game using the new coding skills we had acquired during the sessions.
