Description

This mini hackathon is essentially a no-frills version of MOSA's Winter 2020 Hackathon. Though there will be no official panel of judges nor sponsored prizes, winners will be selected via People's Choice Voting.

The primary motivation is for you to learn something new, build something cool, and boost your portfolio! Any programming language is permissible!

The event is open to all current students of the MCIT Online program and is a great opportunity to work on an open-ended project of your choice with classmates from across the MCIT Online student community.
