Hacks with Friends 2019

Hacks with Friends 2018

The 2019 Hacks with Friends was the biggest and best event yet! More than 140 IT professionals from across Michigan IT gathered once again at the Ross School of Business to create 18 unique and amazing hacks. Participants came from units across the university including HITS, ITS, Dearborn, Michigan Medicine, the University Library, LSA, Ross School of Business, the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Student Life, CAEN and the Office of Development. Each hack/project was built from scratch to completion during the two-day event, March 7-8, and presented for final judging on Friday afternoon. Judges praised the number of hacks that developed a minimal viable product in such a short amount of time and their impressive ability to present their concepts clearly and professionally. See for yourself.
