Knowledgent is excited to be a part of Lehigh University’s Premiere Hackathon, taking place from March 31st – April 1st at The Mountaintop Campus!
A hackathon is an event where developers of all skill levels gather together to learn, pursue new projects, and enjoy themselves. While the word “hack” has such a negative connotation these days, they are striving to bring it a new meaning: the creation of exciting and innovative products in unprecedented ways.
LehighHacks is a 36 hour event in which students enrolled in any college or university are invited to join! Sharad Kumar, Big Data Partner at Knowledgent, will be participating as a judge and helping to decide the winner of the hackathon. At the conclusion of the hacking, teams will present their projects in a science fair/expo environment as the judges walk around. The top ten teams, as selected by the judges, will then pitch their projects on stage to determine a final winner. Happy Hacking!
