The STC and IEEE invite your participation in the 2013 "Code 4 Cal" Hackathon.

What apps do students need? Be innovative! Make a difference!

The goal of the 2013 STC/IEEE Code 4 Cal Hackathon is to provide an environment for students to develop, as a first pass, apps and widgets that meet the information needs of UC Berkeley students.  Students who develop apps and widgets at the Hackathon can follow up by partnering (when feasible) with the potential functional owner to more fully develop the app for submission in the annual STC Web App Competition and potential adoption by the campus. 

Prizes: 

  • First place -- $1,500
  • Second place -- $1,000
  • Third place -- $500

Timing: 

  • Check-In : Friday, Feb 1, 5:00 PM ( Outside HP Auditorium )
  • Start TIme : Friday, Feb 1, 6:00 PM ( Soda Hall: Wozniak Lounge )
  • End Time : Saturday, Feb 2, 4:00 PM

Need Data?: 

A survey of student services units across campus yielded the following needs.  Your team can tackle one of these or make up your own, as long as it serves students. 

  1. Develop a widget for Cal Central: https://github.com/ets-berkeley-edu/calcentral
  2. Need data? Check out http://developer.berkeley.edu/docs and see if an API is available!
  3. If you have an idea for data but it isn't an API yet, submit the idea at http://ideas.berkeley.edu/
