We spent the weekend at HackRU! It was a super fun hackathon in New Brunswick.
I’ve been attending and running hackathons for the past 6 years so here are a few of my tips for first time hackers:
- Try something new, if you haven’t tried Golang or Ruby on Rails then give it a go <3 Hackathons are a great place to try something new.
- Lock your general idea in early on day 1 so you have time to build it and then iterate
- Give yourself enough time to setup your server and deploy your code, if you haven’t done it before it’s a good idea to setup your server on day 1.
