HackTCNJ 2019 News Roundup

Congratulations to the participants of HackTCNJ 2019!   

This year’s event was hosted by TCNJ’s chapter of the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM), in partnership with Major League Hacking (MLH).  HackTCNJ’s 200-plus participants gathered from high schools and colleges in the tri-state area over the February 23-24 weekend.   Teams of participants hunkered down in the Education Building and worked on their projects over the 24-hour period.  In between long stretches of hacking, students stopped to enjoy meals and snacks from Campus Town restaurants, participated in a competitive cup-stacking game, networked with peers and employers from local businesses (like Local Wisdom and Tabula Rasa), and took some much-needed naps.

ACM President Sophie Goldberg (Class of 2020) was interviewed by Princeton Info before the hackathon.  She encouraged students who want to pursue a career in computer science to never stop developing and practicing their skills, especially since technology changes quickly in the industry.  Participating in hackathons, like HackTCNJ, is one such way for students to apply their skills, learn something new, and work on their dream projects in a collaborative environment.  

We hope to see you all again at HackTCNJ 2020!
