HackLab II: Another Hack Night at the i-lab!
Calling all devs - interested in hacking on cool side projects? Bring your laptop & join us at the i-lab for another night of HackLab! We'll have developers from some of our coolest i-lab teams who will sit down with you to help you learn new technologies and hack on projects -- one of ours or bring your own. Come hungry (we'll have pizza) and ready to hack!
Meet other hackers from Hack Harvard, HCVP, Women in CS, and HCS. You'll come away with hands-on experience on a new technology.
Projects from last HackLab included:
- Sexy Time - heatmap of data from the Harvard sex survey, with a time slider so you could see activity over time on google maps.
- Bluetooth Locator Beacons - android app that used bluetooth locator beacons to tell you the name of who you were talking to.
- Make Me a Freshman - this team got to work with the code base of an existing PHP app to add on web & user profile functionality.
Pre-Requisites: Novices are welcome! However, you should have some experience coding (e.g., have completed CS50 or hacked some things together before) so that you're able to sit down and start hacking. Don't know the technologies we're using? No worries, come & learn!
**Please note this event is for Harvard students only**
