One of my goals in 2017 was to get more involved in the technical community and attend more events where I could learn and build things – hackathons are great for this! I attended my first hackathons, got involved in the global community and am now organising my own in 2018. During one of the hackathons, I built a Christmas countdown advent calendar using GIPHY’s API. I was responsible for the front-end of the website and learnt a lot and implemented CSS Grid into my project having failed to understand it alone. My team and I built a great app and won a few prizes!
Pauline Narvas’s summary:
