DubHacks 2014

The HUB hosted over 4,700 programs and events in 2013-14 and the majority of those were for students. We to hope use this newsletter as a way to highlight interesting student events on a regular basis. For this first issue, we’d like to introduce DubHacks. DubHacks was the first major collegiate hackathon in the Pacific Northwest. On October 17 and18, over 400 top college hackers in the Northwest gathered at the HUB to design and build the next generation of innovative software and hardware. Undergraduate students from many different universities across the nation came to the UW for the event. Complimentary meals, workspace, refreshments, and even travel reimbursements ensured that the attendance was strong. Sponsorships from Microsoft, Amazon, Google, and Facebook (just to name a few) showcased the collaborative nature of this amazing student project. The event’s success was a true testament to student programming at the University of Washington! The UW Informatics Undergraduate Association sponsored DubHacks. Read more about the event on GeekWire.
