Openness Night: 24Hr Hackathon, Revisited

If you read some of my previous posts, I posted about me and my partner’s preparation to the Microsoft Philippines Openness Hackathon which was moved to October 26 to 27.

  • Openness Night: 24hr Hackathon
  • Node.js Deployment on Heroku
  • Windows 8 App Dev Boot Camp

First off, it was an overwhelming experience to be able to join the hackathon. It was my first hackathon and obviously (as I had so much fun) won’t be the last. I’d like to thank my intern-gone-hackathon partner, Jennifer Arroyo, for sticking with me and sharing all the fun.

The most fun part is, having to bring your concepts and ideas to life. The app we developed it titled MOOCsage. If you are familiar with MOOCs or Massive Open Online Courses, this app is for those who take the courses on various MOOC providers and wanted to get all your learning materials and deadlines in one place.

We went to the Azure Camp before the hackathon and learned to deploy apps to Windows Azure. We created our initial web app interface using Node.js and Backbone.js. To view the app, you can go to moocsageapp.azurewebsites.net Here’s some of the screenshots:

The app won’t just end there (hackathon) and we have decided even before we joined the hackathon that we’ll be continuing developing and improving the app to make it in use and deliver it to my fellow MOOC sages. :)
