Stories

Kevin Wang

I am definitely a loyal devotee to Codestellation. As a senior having been to every Codestellation since my freshman year, I always find it amazing to see the growth in the number of participants and the quality of the overall event each year. While this year, I was a mentor and not a hacker, I thrououghly enjoyed helping hackers troubleshoot their problems and see some truly amazing hacks developed in 24 hours. I highly recommend Codestellation to hackers of all experience levels. It is an equally great event for beginners and even for those with more experience.

Mahima Devanahalli

Having only a few months of coding experience before Codestellation, I was hesitant to be a part of it at first. However, even though it was my first ever hackathon, I learned a lot in just 24 hours and met many amazing people. From a lock picking workshop to skyping the CEO of Dropbox, I couldn’t have asked for a better first experience!

Adam Fleishaker

Codestellation was a phenomenal experience for me, as a participant and now as an organizer! As a first-year I participated in Codestellation by myself, wanting to see how I've progressed since high school. I found an event that was incredibly informative and friendly, with panels helping educate participants on all sorts of skills, and everyone on the floor having an amazing sense of community and always lending a hand to help each other. Now helping to organize it as a sophomore, I hope to give attendants the same joy and encouragement towards computer science that I received!
