What is it?
HackNEHS is an annual New England Hackathon held at a Microsoft center outside Boston.
What was the process?
It was quite the process. We spent an hour and a half brainstorming. Then two of my friends and I worked on the backend, the music generation and web distribution system, while the other three worked on the website and presentation. We pulled it together at literally the last minute. It was training when they rang the bell at the end.
What did I learn?
We won a thousand dollars! Plus numerous other prizes, some of which I donated to the school library, some of which I am using to further develop this project.
We even got a shout out in my rival school's newspaper
