We organized a thing because we thought it would be fun! (AND IT WAS!)

What it does

We organized UBCHacks' Local hack Day in Vancouver! We hosted 2 workshops (Microsoft – Azure && AMS Game Development Association – Git ), served food & lots of swag to over 160 students and receive sponsorships from over 20 companies and organizations!

How we built it

With dedication and a passion for hackathons.

Challenges we ran into

Had to plan everything in under 2 months.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

WE DID IT! It was an amazing experience and everyone had fun!

What we learned

  • FUN FACT: When 250 students register for an event, only 165 will show up.
  • People don't like it when you cut muffins up into 4 pieces each and will instead take 2 whole muffins.
  • Zeno's Achilles and the Tortoise Paradox is indeed true- continuously half-ing a block of cream cheese does not result in an infinite block of cream cheese but rather, in complaining students. (They got over it because we ordered pizza right after)
  • How to talk on a phone without sounding like an awkward potato.

What's next for We organized a thing!

We'll organize a thing next year.
