Next up on our series of blog posts related to the Ms.Hackers initiative powered by Microsoft Women in Tech, is our review of the all woman hack camp at Cusat, Cochin. Emboldened by the success of the first hack camp at GIT, we expected a great response, and we were not disappointed. Although the hack was conducted in the middle of the exam period, the impact and the enthusiastic turnout made it all worthwhile.
According to Nidhiya Raj, the student coordinator at Cusat, “the impact and the responses were [sic] far beyond my expectations.” She felt that the event was more productive than other events that she organized since “each participant got the individual attention.”
In this hack camp, students had to design a resume using HTML 5 and CSS 3. The relevant study material to aid the participants with the challenge was the Microsoft Virtual Academy course: HTML 5 and CSS3 Fundamentals: Development for Absolute Beginners.
Attendees were encouraged to come up with their own creative ideas on the design of the resume (no handholding here!). Here is a list of some of the participants and links to their projects (just click on the participants’ name to see what they have built):
1. Monija Mohan
4. Athulya Nair
Congratulations to all the participants who took a break from their extremely busy schedule to take part in this one of a kind event. Their dedication will hold them in good stead for the future.
