Fifty UBC Computer Science student volunteers partner with local non-profits this weekend to prototype software solutions at UBC’s inaugural Community Hackathon.
Non-profits will pitch their projects to students on the evening of March 15. Students will then select the projects they want to work on, and spend the weekend developing tailor-made software solutions, honing their skills and working in teams over an intense two-day coding marathon.
The event is organized by the UBC Department of Computer Science in partnership with UBC Community Learning Initiative. Non-profits involved include: the BC Cancer Agency, the Association of Neighbourhood Houses BC, and the Delta Youth Symphony Orchestra.
