In December five members participated in the Geek Soc hackathon hosted at Strathclyde University. Several companies presented challenges to teams and offered prizes to the teams that produced the best program after the two days.
Our team attempted the KANA (a Verint company) challenge, which was to create a zombie apocalypse themed game that mirrored some of the challenges of their enterprise products.
For our game we were awarded joint first place. We were invited to visit KANA’s India of Inchinnan offices where we were given raspberry pis and a shiny award to display somewhere.
