Imagine cramming a week’s worth of development into a day and a half. Perficient played a key role in doing exactly that at CarlHacks, a large-scale hackathon held on the floor of the fieldhouse at Carleton College in Northfield, Minn. More than 100 undergraduate students participated in the 36-hour event, which encourages teams to build apps, games, websites, and other projects.
Perficient not only co-sponsored the event, it also sent volunteer colleagues from the company’s Minneapolis office to serve as consultants and mentors – basically helping students overcome hurdles and better understand the steps necessary to complete their projects.
During CarlHacks, teams of two to five students work through an entire project lifecycle, from forming an idea and developing and testing it, through final presentation before a panel of judges. Among the projects were a virtual reality solar system visualizer and manipulator leveraging an Oculus Rift, and a social media service that allowed users to “leave” geotagged messages for other people to discover.
