Two UST teams compete in UHack.io Hackathon
The University of St. Thomas CISC Department had two teams of students participate in the UHack.io Intercollegiate Hackathon, hosted at the University of Minnesota on September 26th and 27th. The teams of four students needed to pick a prompt, come up with an idea, code up their concept, and then pitch their idea to a panel of judges. The UST team of CS majors Braden Ericson, Chad Luangrath, Andrew Schleicher, and Fin Delahanty made it to the second round. They created a web app that would allow a user to filter reviews and clothing items based on people of similar size. Their code can be found on the team's github repository: https://github.com/bradenericson/uhack.io-2014 .
