Team Hatch&&Batch decided to help those that come later to better understand the Scality S3 Server and what it can do. They call the project GUI & Data Visualization. Said Holden Grissett, one of the team of five, “We are very green programmers, so we decided to build a GUI that gives a demo and Tutorial of the S3 Server.”
This team’s members are all students at the Holberton School who started just three weeks ago. None has ever been to a Hackathon before, but all of them are enthusiastic about making something useful—and usable. Their project is an interactive demo that shows Create, Read, Update and Delete of files and onjects in buckets, and of the buckets themselves.
Holden Grissett lived in Palm Springs before coming to San Francisco to start the program at the Holberton School three weeks ago. Working as an A/V Tech, he took some time off before coming to San Francisco to hike and enjoy the outdoors.
Justin Marsh was working on self-study to learn programming when he came across the Holberton School online. He lived in Mexico, and mixed that self-study with travel and playing poker.
The team says Walton Lee is their most experienced coder. Walton hasn’t done a hackathon before, but he learned of the school through an email newsletter, Code Project. He had been studying Biology, but after spending time shadowing a surgeon, realized that wasn’t for him, so he started “playing around” with programming in HTML. Working as a firmware integration engineer at Tesla, that interest intensified as he developed an interest in how tech is applied in autos.
Philip Yoo did attend a development bootcamp in SF and learned some web development. He dabbled in Ruby before that. Bootcamp was good, but left him wanting to learn more; so he enrolled at Holberton.
Jay Wang was a Civil Engineering student in NY, had a friend who did a programming boot camp. She doesn’t have a coding background, but she’s interested, and came today to see what a hackathon was like.
