Node.JS Workshop with Accenture
Web applications are great starter projects for any beginning hacker, so to kickoff the spring quarter, Hack hosted a workshop with Accenture, a management consulting services company. On April 19th, 89 students piled into DBH 6011 to learn about Node.JS, a run-time environment for making networking systems and apps. Beginning hackers were introduced to the structure and flow of how networking applications worked, and more advanced hackers learned about how Node.JS can create applications that were high-performance and easily scalable. By the end of the workshop, students were able to create a simple web application. Skills like these are rarely taught in classroom settings, so we strive to bring a new facet of development and learning that can be easily applied in technical workshops.
