From the long hours our students spend in the classroom, to the endless nights coding away at home, we are constantly inspired by the graduates of The Coding Boot Camp at UT Austin.
Amanda Wisniowski, graduate of the July 2017 cohort, recently put the skills she picked up at The Coding Boot Camp to the test at the 2018 SXSW Hackathon. At this intensive, marathon coding event, hackers and fellow collaborators can create apps that pertain to film, music, VR/AR, and the blockchain.
"The hackathon reminded me of the projects we did for the boot camp, but condensed into 24 hours, instead over a 2 week span," Wisniowski shared. "Having the group project experience in building apps during the boot camp helped me navigate this hackathon well, and will definitely carry over professionally during my career."
After 24 hours of sleep deprivation and hard work, the talents of Wisniowski and her two teammates paid off—with their livestreaming VR concert app Concertbilia taking home second place in the Amazon category.
