This is the story of how the feeling of creating a great learning experience for others can improve the taste of absolutely anything and everything.
The coffee I’m sipping right now tastes much better than ever before. Unfortunately this text will not give you the ultimate recipe for the perfect amount of chili and cinnamon to add to yours. It will tell you how the feeling of creating a great learning experience for others can improve the taste of absolutely anything and everything. As you will soon see, this story not only begins with a cup of coffee but also ends with one.
Great ideas need great people
The greatest amount of coffee was drunk the night before the Hackathon
The machine could not do it all
What’s also worth mentioning is that we had a neat platform measuring the optimizations that were submitted. The platform called Hacka Tester, published live results to boost up the competitiveness in participants.
It was exciting even though it posted just an approximation of the scores. The final code verification was conducted by Konrad and Paweł to make sure that the fastest code does something fast enough, rather than an extremely fast nothing.
The prizes also did a great job!
Winners were able to put their hands on a device we are all really excited about at Making Waves. We gave them Arduino!
