CSE department hosts “Hackathon” with Microsoft

On Friday, April 5, the Department of Computer Science and Engineering hosted a six-hour “Hackathon.” Students were invited to develop apps for Windows 8, working with the guidance of a Microsoft engineer.

Approximately 35 programmers participated, ranging from seniors down to first-year students. Each attendee submitted at least one app, with a few submitting two on that day. The students have the opportunity to earn $100/app approved and posted, with up to five submissions. Michael Dewar, chair of the CU Denver Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) chapter helped facilitate the event.

The program runs through April 15, and is a great opportunity for our students.
