The Sheridan Hackathon is intended to encourage creativity, innovation, and cross-program collaboration within the Sheridan student body through the creation of gutsy, inspired, and real-world applications. Participants will have the opportunity to network with their peers, learn from the expertise of both computing and business faculty, and pitch their ideas to industry and college partners. Prizes will be awarded to the team that creates the best app. In order to be successful, participants will need to demonstrate advanced research, organization, teamwork, problem-solving and communication skills.
Positioned at the center of connecting students to knowledge, the library provides a perfect platform for this event. As a neutral space, students from different programs -- whether applied computing, business, graphic design, health or other programs – have the opportunity to collaborate together on a programming project. In addition, the hackathon will further the library’s commitment to promoting critical thinking, collaboration, an entrepreneurial spirit, open source and open data, and life-long learning.
The Shackathon will take place on the third floor of the Davis campus library.
Saturday June 7th and Sunday June 8th, 2014.
