SD Hacks

SD Hacks was UCSD's first major hackathon with more than 1000 hackers and a $300,000 budget.

SD Hacks aimed to redefine Silicon Beach and establish San Diego as a major player in technological innovation. With a projected attendance of more than 1000 hackers, SD Hacks requires an elegant yet highly functional and reliable website to handle registrations and to deliver information to attendees. I was invited to the SD Hacks team to take be one of two leads in application development.

My Role

I helped design and develop the website and created major features such as a queueing app for mentors at the hackathon to connect with mentees. Other duties included creating a registration system using the Typeform API and parsing through the data. We used Laravel as a framework for this project. Other technologies used were Bootstrap, JavaScript, SASS, HTML5, and PHP. During the event, I assisted with logistics, tech support, and organizing judging details.
