As a marketing intern at Digilent, I have been working closely with the IEEE WSU Student chapter president on the first annual WSU Hardware Hackathon. That president just so happens to be me. For the last few years as a student I’ve realized that WSU has been missing a large opportunity to promote student learning and ingenuity. A hardware hackathon! As the IEEE president, I’ve been organizing the event with the help of the WSU Robotics Club and Palouse Robosub.
The theme of this year’s Hardware Hackathon is the Internet of Things (IoT). Don’t know what the Internet of Things is? Check out Josh’s blog post where he explains.
Stay tuned for more posts about the 1st Annual WSU Hardware Hackathon with our sponsor Digilent as I get more into planning, and then as the actual event happens!
