University of Rochester's 3rd annual Spring Hackathon

DandyHacks is an event about building the coolest thing you can in 36 hours and meeting awesome people. This year we decided to try something new and combine CS and Data Science together into one hackathon! We don't place any restrictions on the kind of projects you can build. They can be software projects, hardware projects, or whatever else you want to come up with. It just has to be built within the 36 hours.

At the end of the 36 hours we have judges get together and determine the coolest hacks. Winners get awesome prizes!
