Hackentine - February 2016
Students came on Valentines day to show their LOVE for coding. They developed an app which they presented to a panel of judged for a chance to win great prizes. The event had coders with several skill levels, from beginners to programming experts. Sponsorship from Mobify, Visier, and Fortinet.
Alex Land, Aaryaman Girish, and Trevor Clelland took home the top prize with their app made for long distance couples longing for a heart to heart connection. The app which was created under 24 hours allows the user to send their heart beat in real time to their special someone by sensing color changes within the skin that occur during a heart beat. The team hopes to give couples in long distace relationships a fun and creative way to send their love. This isn't the first time the team has taken the top spot at the hackathon and they vow they will be back looking for it once again next year. Watch the video about their app here!
If you would like to be part of the app, the team encourages fellow hackers to tweak the code that can be found on their GitHub: https://github.com/Coffeeboys/Heartbeat
