Review: the app@night hackathon at LMU

Two days ago I wrote about the app@night hackathon at LMU Munich which I was about to participate in. There was no chance for me to write something in the meantime, so let me briefly sum up and discuss the last two and a half days.

app@night – hackathon at LMU Munich

This weekend will be full of work for me – work here being coding, hacking, learning about new technology. Why that? Because this weekend there will be a hackathon at my university, the Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich, called “app@night“. As I have never participated in any hackathon before, I am not really qualified to explain what that might be. As far as I understood, hackathons are coding events, most times lasting for one day or one week at its best, aiming to learn about coding, to work with other people and to find out about new technology, new frameworks, new programming languages (here the link to the English wikipedia entry). Our specific hackathon will last for the whole weekend and includes several programmes concerning mobile development, especially Google Glass, Android smartwatches or iOS, to mention just some of them. There has been no restriction to students of computer science, so I guess there will be people with quite heterogene background. I am really excited about our task, our group (at least I already know 2 out of 5) and, of course, the outcome. We will be working with Google Glass, and I am really, really excited to put my hands on one of these devices! 🙂
