This past weekend marked General Assembly and HPE Haven OnDemand’s first ever Android Hackathon open to current students and alumni of GA. Tasked with creating an Android app with three views and using at least one of Haven OnDemand’s APIs, five teams set out on this journey filled with pizza, tacos, coffee, and even some breakdancing!
The event began Friday night with a casual social mixer followed by a workshop given by the one, and only, Phong. After an interesting, uncontested, breakdancing battle, participants left for the night to get some rack before the long weekend. Hackers arrived early Saturday morning to pitch ideas they wanted to work on and form teams. Once these were set, hackers worked through the weekend overcoming pitfalls, learning a few things here and there about project management and timing, and building some pretty sweet Android apps.
