This is the third Hack&Roll hackathon I have joined and my very last one for this hackathon and as an NUS student. Can check out my first two here and here. Didn’t win anything but not that we were expecting any, it is the stuff we learned that were most important.
This is the third hackathon I have joined and the first that involves hardware. Although my team was not selected to go for the next round of judging, I’m glad to have learned alot during this IDA-organised XtremeApps hackathon held at SMU.
NUS Hackers tried to encourage participants to write a blog post or on social media about their experiences in the HacknRoll 2014, so here it is. Nah, I would have written this anyway without their encouragement. But after they read what I wrote, I wonder if they would still share it.
I confess I signed up for this weekend event at the last minute. One of the team members who was an acquaintance of mine said they needed one more member so I joined. I can say, I left this 24hour hackathon today with no regrets other than the proverbial, I could have done that better in hindsight attitude. This was my first hackathon and most definitely won’t be my last.
