My First Hackathon

Yesterday, I participated in my first hackathon at General Assembly hosted by Glamour Magazine and CFDA (one of my pieces from ITP is in this book):

Dressed to Code: Glamour's Fashion Hackathon
https://www.hackerleague.org/hackathons/dressed-to-code-glamours-fashion-hackathon

It was pretty fun, and the time went by very quickly. I wanted to meet new people and see what apps were floating around in fashion. I worked on an app called ShopBook, which allowed users to store size information, calendar of special occasions and a "Mood Mosaic" to replace entering a text field of favorite colors and styles (also this information would keep users' current trends up to date since fashion changes every season). There is more information here:
