Memories of HackMIT 2016
On September 17th and 18th, 1000 college hackers traveled to MIT’s campus for an eagerly anticipated HackMIT 2016 from around the world — from Boston to Jamaica to Guwahati, India.
As our team ramps up for our next event, Blueprint, we wanted to reflect on what makes a hackathon special for its attendees. 2015’s theme was experimentation. That year, we debuted a new mentor queue system (HELPq), revamped our judging model (through Gavel), and held a series of educational talks and workshops leading up to the hackathon for the local community.
This time, we focused on engagement: helping hackers get the most possible out of the event alongside building awesome hacks. We’re excited about the results!
