CODE: The 1st Nationwide Hackathon Weekend!

Are you looking for a new, extreme experience during Reading Week? Get your team together and sign up for the first nationwide hackathon!

Recently, Tony Clement, President of the Treasury Board, was at Mohawk College’s MEDIC research lab at the Fennell Campus.  He announced the Canadian Open Data Experience (CODE) – the country’s first national open data hackathon for postsecondary education students, entrepreneurs and innovators.  CODE is a 48-hour competition, and will take place from Feb. 28 to March 2.  If you’re looking for inspiration, or tips to get you through the weekend, read this article: John Hopkins students pull all-nighters for 36-hour HopHacks hackathon.
