The University of Georgia Inaugural Hackathon was an event calling hackers from all fields to come together and create a product from concept to completion over the course of 3 nonstop days. The product could be anything, the only limit was each team’s imagination. There were back-end coders, front-end developers, designers, strategists, and people there to just enjoy the show. At the end of the 3 days, each team presented their project in a fair-like setting. Judges chose a Top 8, who were then invited to present their projects to the entire event.
