Current Hackathons: Horsetalk and Botler. See below.
There are multiple definitions of hack. "To play inexpert golf", "To rear a young hawk", "To operate a taxicab", etc. But the one of which we are speaking is none of those nor is it the definition regarding gaining unauthorized access to a computer system. (That's what CTFs are for.) These Hackathons are based off of the original computer-related hack definitions:
"To write computer programs for enjoyment" & "To create a usually creative solution to a computer hardware or programming problem or limitation"
So vocabulary lessons aside, what is a Computer Club Hackathon?
Well, Hackathons are a weekly CS workshop / programming party. We'll start a new project every month and gather once a week to work on it.
At Hackathons you get a chance to work with other club members to work on a variety of programming projects.
These may include but are not limited to:
Starting this Summer 2015 we will begin working on our very own CTF.
Hackathons will be held to write problems
