Code Nation Hackathon

I was a judge at the Code Nation ‘s fourth annual Bay Area Hackathon on February 7th. 

I had a great time putting on my judging hat and picking the winners for this year’s Code Nation Hackathon in the Bay Area. 🏆

With the theme being “Code for a Movement”, the 1st place team focused on creating a website around education and resources related to foster care. 📝

Shout out to fellow judges John Kodumal and Clarence Wooten for collaborating and a big thank you to Juliana Smith for the opportunity! 💯
