What to expect when your Hack…athoning :)

Let’s get to Hacking!!! :)
  1. Don’t overthink it — I spent hours figuring out which Hackathon to bite the proverbial bullet on on. Experience working with other developers is very valuable especially when you recently graduated from a bootcamp.
  2. Team or no team? — I’d definitely suggest either putting a team together or try and join a team not to do a repeat of number 1 but working with others is very important and it’s good practice for white boarding challenges as well as technical interviews.
  3. You know what you know —Everybody brings their own bit of knowledge to a team during a hackathon. Me as a fresh out of bootcamp grad didn’t feel like I had much to contribute to the team(that was not the case lol). This is a great opportunity to practice skills you’ve developed as well as new ones.
  4. Have fun!!! — Coding should always be done with a smile on your face so have a good time when your hacking away lol.
