Innovation at Rutgers Hackathon 2016

It’s that time of year again for one of my favorite event at Rutgers – Hack RU. This year about 900 students are expected to attend the Rutgers Hackathon spring 2016. Held at the Rutgers RAC building, the event draws students from many different colleges and states. As they all spend 24 hours honing their coding skills, innovation is in the air.


What’s HackRU?

HackRU is a 24-hour hackathon at Rutgers University. We welcome hundreds of students to join us in building awesome software and hardware projects. Industry experts and mentors come from all over the country to create an environment that fosters an atmosphere of learning through tech talks and one-on-one guidance. They encourage beginner and advanced hackers alike to challenge themselves and expand their skills.

Are more women attending Hackathons?

The women involved in computer science at Rutgers may be a small percentage of the students in that field, but they proved how powerful they are this weekend when they organized a Hackathon geared toward women. The “HackHers” has their won Hackathon as well.
