Codeday was a big reason I got into hackathon managing and programming as a whole. My good friend Matthew introduced me to the Codeday he was running, and I thought it was incredible. I've helped organize two Codedays in Indianapolis (one of the first programming events in Indiana), and it's been a great experience.
This was a great stepping stone in organizing even bigger hackathons, such as Windy City Hacks and Hack The Fog. I'm now taking this experience with me and starting a Codeday of my own in Storrs, Connceticut. I'm extremely hopeful and excited for this event and it's all because of Codeday Indy that I fell in love with hackathons.
