There is Still Time to Register for IC codethon


Contributed by Jenna Linskens

Have you ever had an idea for a new application or an interest in how various apps might be created? Do you like to problem solve and work with teams to develop ideas? Ithaca College is holding our first codethon 4pm Saturday, December 1 until 4pm on Sunday, December 2, 2018.

Similar to the popular hack-a-thons happening around the country, mentors will lend expertise, expose a type of exploratory learning and prepare participants to think critically and outside of a traditional method for approaching problems as you dive into producing a project which will help the community. 

The Ithaca College codethon brings anyone with interest in coding together; from beginners interested in learning more to those who have coded for years. This event is FREE and open to high school and college students (ages 15+) and young professionals. Thinkers and Mentors will work together  non-stop for 24-hours to create something from nothing. Regardless of your level of coding expertise, join us for a lot of fun, free food, swag, coffee, and prizes!
