EECS Students Engineer the 2018 Hackathon- Hack-KU

August 23, 2018

The EECS ACM student branch coordinated the 2018 Hack-KU hackathon in April 2018. Computer Science students Mason Wilde and Taylor Walenczyk led the event. About 60 participants came from KU, K-State and Johnson County Community College. They developed code related to environmental issues over a 24-hour period in Engineering Complex. The event attracted nine industry sponsors, including CBoe (formally Bats Global Markets), one of the world’s largest exchange holding company with a significant presence in Kansas City, as well as Kansas City based Multi Service Technology Solutions (MSTS). To learn more about the event see the video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CqjAgtR5oY ) produced by EECS student Justin Roderman, the ACM events co-coordinator. The group is looking forward to its next hackathon-2019 Hack-KU.
