“Hackathons are complementary to the courses that our students take: they apply the knowledge they gained in different courses to build one single product,” Rudra said in an email. “This application is precisely what they will need to do when they go to their jobs (or start their own company).”
Ward echoed Rudra’s sentiment. Ward believes hackathons are an essential learning experience for computer science majors. He encourages students interested in the field to attend a hackathon whenever they can.
