Android Hackathon | ShiftKey Labs | Saturday, 10. February 2018

ShiftKey Labs and the Dalhousie Computer Science Society (CSS) are teaming up to run a 2-day hackathon focused on Android mobile application development.

The format is pretty simple: Show up, join or form a team, brainstorm an idea guided by the disclosed prize categories, spend the remainder of the weekend coding out that solution, and present/demo your idea to the group. Everyone will get a chance to vote on the presentations/demos and the group who receives the most votes for a prize will win!

Snacks and drinks will be provided throughout the event to keep you fuelled up!

To generate some interesting ideas and start creating a functional mobile application prototype for the Google Android platform. Hackathons are also a great way to meet new people, earn bragging rights about your coding abilities, win prizes, and have some fun!
