This past weekend I had the pleasure of joining a team of hackers in the Hack Big For Small Business Hackathon. The event was sponsored by Visa and US Bank. We were challenged with creating a website or app that used the extensive data available using the API's of Visa, US Bank, and Elavon.
I joined the team of Lola Ojabowale. The other registered 4 members on our team were: Khalif Cooper , Nathan Daniels, and Nelson Quinones.
It was an amazing event. We had a chance to meet and network with many professional designers, developers, and business leaders in the Atlanta area. Their were also executives that traveled to Atlanta to participate.
Our team did not take home the big prize but we made new friendships and we had a great time using the creative process to come up with a web application we titled "cashflo."
Here are some images from the event.
This was my first hackathon but it won't be my last. I will be seeking them out as it is a great way to learn new skills, meet new people, and work on cool projects for companies and organizations.
Until next time,
