The Student Tech Council invites all disciplines, programmers, designers, and innovators alike to participate in the Code 4 Cal Hackathon!
What apps do students need? What problems can be solved with a few lines of code? How can you improve the student experience?
With the increasing use of smartphones and other mobile devices this year's Code 4 Cal Hackathon will be focused on mobile apps! The goal of the STC's Code 4 Cal Hackathon is to provide an enviroment for students to develop ideas into mobile apps that meet the information and daily needs of UC Berkeley students.
Students who develop mobile apps at the Hackathon will also be able to further develop their apps for submission in the 2015 annual STC Mobile App Competition and work with the STC on the distribution of their fully developed applications under UC Berkeley's App Stores!
