Hackathon Shows Central Valley is Tech Savvy

By Middagh Goodwin

It is so great to see so many tech-savvy young coders in the Central Valley. Valley Hackathon took place over a 24 hour period on January 25th and 26th at ValleyWorx here in Modesto. Over 200 people came out this year to test their coding skills or support this event. With ideas for apps ranging from, how to get you up in the morning to when you should buy gas for the best prices to self-driving tractors, these hackers had unique and creative solutions. Congratulations to all the participants and the winners.
