Build It: “We are under development”

Build It: “We are under development”

With Build It approaching the 24th hour, we’re taking a look at the teams’ progress. As expected in a hackathon, some of the projects overlap, giving the teams an excellent opportunity to find synergies during the second and final day.

Helpful advice on how to go about the final day remaining can be found from this blogpost by Ramine Darabiha. Good reading especially since there seems to be many first-timers taking part.

With hours of work, poorly slept night under the belt and too much candy, the next 24 hours should be spent wisely; Decide if you wanna focus on concept creating, deploying basic functionalities of your website/app or simply having fun coding, cracking problems and teaming up.

The Garage is getting ready to take a break and dine, but in the meanwhile, take a look below at the projects currently being worked on. Some pics from Saturday can be found here.

I’m having a blast at Build It, as hopefully are my fellow builders as well!
