The University of Denver Computer Science department, along with the Computer Science department from Metropolitan State University of Denver, are collaborating to host our first ever Hackathon!

A hackathon is a loosely coordinated event where people (creatives, programmers, web aficionados, or just interested folks) get together to work together to build something in a short period of time. It’s a great opportunity to get to know students from a different school or department, as well as practice teamwork and collaboration! It’s also both a great thing to have on your resume, and a lot of fun!
