DandyHacks 2017                               

{"Hello World!"}

Thanks to those who joined us last weekend! We had about 190 people come throughout the event and 31 project submissions on devpost. The number and quality of projects has never been better, and so many teams deserved to win!

Planning the event is an amazing opportunity to get involved in the department, and we want to give a huge shout-out to Maggie Curtis '17, CSUG's event planning chair, for making all of this happen. If you want to help plan the next Hackathon or want to provide feedback on what we can do better, please reach out to us. (

You can find pictures of the event on our Facebook page. More to come in the next few days!
