1. You’ll learn. A lot
Hackathons are great learning experiences – and much more focused than any lecture. You’ll learn to generate ideas, collaborate with others, manage a project and use the tools of software engineers – such as libraries, frameworks and APIs. You’ll learn to debug, do version control, test your work and present it – and all under deadlines. You’ll learn to work efficiently to achieve the best results – thereby making a hackathon a great practice for your professional future. And it will look great on your resume.
2. You’ll show others what you can do
As you’re starting out, you’re looking for a way to get noticed. Participating in a hackathon will show future employers how serious you are about working in VR. Hackathon projects can showcase your skills and be added to your portfolio – and the event itself is a great opportunity to network.
3. You’ll meet people
Whether potential start-up partners, future employers or new friends – hackathons are a great way to interact with people from your industry. Working together in a fast-paced environment brings people together, and that’s how great contacts are made.
4. You’ll have fun
Working with a team to create something from scratch can be a deeply satisfying experience. You’ll learn from your teammates, and you’ll push your limits in ways you wouldn’t have thought possible. It’s not a test of your skills – and you don’t have to be a great programmer to do it. Come with an open mind and you’ll have a great time. And it’s all for a great cause!
5. You’ll contribute to the environment
The Hackathon will bring together environmental activists, educators and developers, united in the purpose of educating future generations on global warming and other ecological issues. This goal is now more important than ever. If you’re concerned about our global future, this is a great place to start making a change.
6. You’ll help developing education
We’re approaching the day when learning by passively sitting in a classroom will be considered a thing of the past. Be a part of this exciting sea change, and help us deploy cutting-edge technologies to reshape classrooms and make learning meaningful – and fun!
