2016 RSI Hackathon- “Thanks for the MEMORY”
RSI is hosting our first annual RSI ABQ Hackathon!!! We’re going retro this year and remembering the technology of years past! RSI is kickin’ it old school style on Friday, September 30th and taking it back to celebrate the 30+ years of technological advances and generations of geniuses! What used to take months to program, we’re putting together in just four hours! Prepare yourself for another totally rad coding party and the opportunity to win a PAID internship with RSI!
What is a hack·a·thon you ask?
/ˈHAKəˌthän / noun: a Hackathon (also known as a hack-day, hackfest or codefest) is an event in which computer programmers and others in the field of software development, like graphic designers, interface designers and project managers collaborate intensively on a software related project for a set amount of time.
It’s pretty much one of the most radical parties around, with tons of food, an awesome DJ, sweet prizes, and stella demos from hip coders like yourself. As a 2016 RSI hacker, you and your gamers will be given all the info needed to complete the coding project. Choose whatever programming language you want. When the last bit of code is compiled and demoed, the team selected for rockin’ contributions of a technical nature made to the computing community for the day will be granted RSI’s version of the “Turing Award” -an RSI Paid Internship!
To get started, grab your laptop (even though they weren’t invented back in the day) and visit this link. More details are coming soon! You can register as an individual or as part of a team (4 max! per team). If you don’t have a team, no worries! We’ll pair you with other dudes or dudettes!
