C100 Hackathon Recap
Last week at C100’s Hackathon #2, we brought together an incredible group to focus on the topic of creating a matched platform to connect our community.
Each team had their own creative ideas, summarized below:
Team 1:​ A directory and communication channel using the tool ​Vanilla Forums​
Team 2: ​A directory and communication channel using a WordPress plugin ​UM​
Team 3:​ A custom code directory and communication channel with a login portal linked with Linkedin’s API that lives on the C100’s website
C100 is excited to review the team’s proposals and work with our our participants on innovative ways to bring the community closer together. Stay tuned!
Remembrance Day
C100 would like to thank Michael Barbour for visiting us last week. He is a part of the The Royal Canadian Legion US Zone, Branch #25 representing the San Francisco Bay area. Each year the Royal Canadian Legion conducts the Poppy campaign and C100 will be participating this year with poppies being available during our November events!
