Over 70 Students Attend Bermuda “Hackathon”

January 4, 2015

Over 70 students attended a Bermuda “Hackathon” on Friday [Jan 2], with the event designed to help empower young Bermudians to be producers and creators of technology.

Speaking after the event, organisers Code 441 said, “We met at XL Group for Code 441′s very first hackathon and we thank you for making it a tremendous success! We had over 70 students in attendance and built three different websites including a personal webpage, solar system and a text animation.

“The students first learned about what programming is and why it is important in the modern age, especially here in Bermuda. We then learned about the fundamentals of front-end programming with HTML & CSS and started learning a little Javascript.

“Students came from all over the island and from all different schools. They made new friends, laughed with each other and completely finished 4 full trays of pizza. All in all it was an amazing day and we thank you for being a part of it.

  2. Anything ends with “athon”…most likely will have significant results!
