What Went Down At Forloop Unilag
We were all welcomed to the hackathon by the head of the Department of Computer Science Dr. Sawyer and he advised the students to take coding and teamwork seriously. Teams were created and the hackathon was deployed in earnest.

Day 2 was Nerve-Wracking as each team competed against each other to build the best app that will crown them winners of #Hackoka. The students had to properly build an app to solve real-life issues. Each team was allocated a server to move the app life and our developer was on the ground to ensure that everyone had a live app.
