Hello CSc majors,
Please see the message below if you are interested in virtual hackathons. 


Message from Devpost : 

I thought these virtual hackathons may give an alternative to keep growing and learning new skills, while also providing an opportunity to collaborate and win some amazon prizes, including cash and meetings with top companies.

There is no cost to enter and projects can be submitted online anytime prior to the deadline.  Each challenge also has resources and a community chat available to help participants connect and ask questions along the way!
