I am currently at a hackathon (an event, typically lasting several days, in which a large number of people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming) called knights hack sponsored by popular companies such as Dell, Siemens, Deloitte, and Google ! I am not new to hackathons, but here seems to be a collaboration of friends, ideas, and a diversity of women, and minorities that I haven't seen before.This event is ran by Major League Hacking (MLH) & Knight Hacks, and had an opening talk by one of the alienware cofounders Frank Azor. Google was here giving out 50 free card boards Googles $20 virtual reality viewer. Hackers and sponsors got to play Frank Azor in a Steam game winning a free Alienware T-shirt just for playing. There was free healthy food, great talks by Siemens and Alienware, and an overall great staff. Over 150 students are at this event and the hacking has begun.
