Four student teams, comprised of a total of 10 to 12 individuals from the College of Computing and Informatics, will participate in a regional hackathon set for Saturday and Sunday, July 12 - 13, in the PORTAL building at UNC Charlotte.
The University is hosting one of several such events being held worldwide; the goal is to expose technology innovators and the financial services community to one another. Hackathon organizers are founders of "The Money Event" (TME) held during Super Mobility Week in Las Vegas Sept. 9 - 11. TME sessions focus on innovations in commerce, banking, payments and financial services in general.
According to hackathon organizers, their mission is to demonstrate the power of open platforms and mobile technologies in fostering innovations in financial services.
Whether looking for a walk in the woods or some fun on a lake, UNC Charlotte’s Venture outdoor education program has the right summer trip. Led by experienced outdoor facilitators, Venture trips are open to UNC Charlotte students, faculty, staff and the general public.
All trips require a mandatory pre-trip meeting to review the itinerary, safety precautions and for participants to meet their companions. Typically, all equipment and transportation are provided by Venture.
This summer, trips include outings to South Mountains State Park for hiking and Lake Jocassee for camping and kayaking.
