(No, this is not an April Fools post, but we have one available if you haven’t gotten your fill yet.)
A few weeks ago we kicked off a new tradition for Vector 35, a yearly hackathon. We’ve been wanting to do this for some time now, but over the new-year break we finally got a date on the calendar and spent March 11th-15th working on a variety of fun projects.
The rules were simple: whatever you worked on during the hackathon had to be something that you weren’t doing your daily routine, and it had to sound fun to you. The plan was to explore fresh ideas, try some experiments, or build things you thought were interesting but weren’t otherwise on our immediate to do list.
With only one week of hacking we cranked out a ton of different and useful results. This is also a good chance to introduce different members of the Vector 35 team you might not have been aware of too, so we’ll break down what everyone worked on below.
