Directors' Note

We'd like to congratulate everyone who participated in HackDuke last weekend, regardless of any prize or completion of a hack. We hope that you used the 24 hours you spent with us to think about social good, about collaboration and learning something new, and about knowing that you, too, can make a positive impact and make this world a better place.

We know that, as fun and exciting HackDuke is for some, hackathons aren’t for everyone, and that’s okay! We really want to encourage everyone to think about their future and space in tech, even if you think you don’t belong. It's not realistic for us to expect the best prototype of a hack from one weekend; projects that truly change the world take months, years to create. What you’ve all done is started a movement in thinking about impactful tech, and that’s all we ask of you.

Again, thank you all, and stay updated for news about Ideate, our design-thinking conference in the spring!
