On January 23th and 24th, I attended my first Hackathon. It was the ConUHacks at Concordia. It was an extraordinary experience. For those who do not know what a hackathon is … it has nothing to do with security. It is a contraction of the words “hack” and “marathon”!
The objective during a hackathon is to produce something during a given time. For ConUHacks, we had 24 hours and there was no specific theme. Sponsors were proposing contests with prizes, so me and my team of 4 people chose the try the contest of Air Transat. The challenge was to create an application for young travelers.
