HearMeHack is a new mentorship-oriented Hackathon hosted by the Electrical and Computer Engineering Student Society! It is solely designed to help UBC students who want to explore the programming world for their first time, get started on learning a language, or want to implement their first project! The mission is to provide mentorship to beginners through a dedicated group of experienced programmers (UBC Students, and industry representatives) through one-to-one discussions and group workshops. HearMeHackwill also be partnering with Major League Hacking to participate in their LocalHost program which offers cool workshops for programmer enthusiasts.
The event will be hosted on the UBC Vancouver campus on Saturday September 23rd, 2017 from 9 am to 10 pm. We are welcoming all UBC students who show a willingness to learn and grow as a programmer. If you are an experienced programmer, we are also looking for dedicated mentors to help enrich the quality of the event!
New to programming? No problem!
- Resources to learn from, strategies, etc.
- What are the different programming languages and how do they differ?
- Crash course on the fundamentals of C, Python, Java, etc.
- Fundamentals of programming, including basic algorithms (Project Euler)
- Using Github (Basics)
- Introduction to Object Oriented Programming
- HTML/CSS for Web-Development
These workshops are led by a team of mentors, from ECE Upper Years, sponsoring Companies
from the industry, and potentially mentors from other UBC clubs and other companies. Our vision
is to have floor-mentors who will be guiding a group on for their project, helping overcome hurdles,
explaining a concept or helping to apply a concept, etc. We are open to additional workshop ideas
proposed by our sponsors and mentors!
