Why hackathons?

September 26, 2017

In this trimester, I’m preparing to go to 5 hackathons. Including organizing one, that’s 6 hackathons I’m involved with in a 4 month period. Why?!

Back when I first started my degree, I told myself the two most important things for me to do are to learn as much as I can and to build technology that enabled people.

Last year I went through a boring and unfulfilling year at school. Classes were lecture style, where I would fall asleep, and I barely built anything that I was truly passionate about.

I can’t live like that.

I refuse to live like that.

This year, I’m spending time and money on myself. Hackathons are for my development and for my wellbeing. I’m having the greatest time of my life.
