A hackathon or codefest is a sprint-like event in which computer science students from universities and colleges around the country come together for a weekend of fun and excitement. These brilliant students are then involved in the design and development of software, collaborating intensively to create a final product.

AABDP co-sponsored the Hoya Hackathon at Georgetown University in Washington, DC from January 29, 2016 to January 31, 2016.
