Perficient Consultants Shine at “Show Me the Data” Hackathon


Three of our St. Louis technical consultants recently participated in University of Missouri – St. Louis’ “Show Me the Data” Hackathon. Participants worked in teams of three to five people utilizing both existing and newly created data to create an interface that solved real-world business problems.

Teams had 36 hours over one weekend to apply their hacking skills and build their application. To participate in the Hackathon, participates need to be either current undergraduate or graduate students, or graduated in the past six months. Coding experience isn’t required, but participants needed to have a strong interest in technology and problem solving.
