This event was Temple’s first ever Hackathon event where students are invited to start and finish a project within 12 hours. By being part of this event I was making history at Temple University and was able to work with students from all different levels.
For this project my team made a python script that collects student information from Canvas and automatically adds them into a slack group depending on the class they are currently attending. For this project we used Python and Django to manipulate the Canvas and Slack api to make this all work.
In the end of the Hackathon we were one of the few groups remaining that were able to demonstrate a finished prototype. We also won a sponsored category – Lockheed Martin’s Best First Time Hack
