The University’s first large-scale hackathon, “BigRed//Hacks,” took place this weekend, with students from colleges across the East Coast using their technical skills to create new software and hardware.

Approximately 300 participants from schools all across the Northeast attended the hackathon and collaborated to create a wide variety of projects, according to Leon Zaruvinsky ’17, one of the event’s organizers.
