28 hours. Create anything: Participants design technological projects at TAMUHack competition:
More than 500 participants flocked to Rudder Tower Friday to participate in TAMUHack, which gave contestants 28 hours for a deceptively simple task — create anything, and win prizes ranging from T-shirts to iPads and computers. Tracy Hammond, faculty sponsor for TAMUHack, said a hackathon is a unique, beneficial experience. “The nice thing about a hackathon as opposed to, say, a programming contest, is that there is no direct problem they are trying to solve,” Hammond said. “They get to be creative and think of their own problem. And a lot of times the students who work on these problems are recruited by different industry people who are participating in the hackathon.”

She said the data will give her students another resource to build on, helping them immensely. "You have a huge university here," she said. "We have the brain power of a much larger city.

More than 500 participants flocked to Rudder Tower Friday to participate in TAMUHack, which gave contestants 28 hours for a deceptively simple task create anything, and win prizes ranging from T-shirts to iPads and computers. Tracy Hammond, faculty sponsor for TAMUHack, said a hackathon is a unique, beneficial experience. The nice thing about a hackathon as opposed to, say, a programming contest, is that there is no direct problem they are trying to solve, Hammond said. They get to be creative and think of their own problem. And a lot of times the students who work on these problems are recruited by different industry people who are participating in the hackathon.
