HackUST 2016

I am very happy to join HackUST as one of the teams this year. My Project is called “IOU One” and I work with another CityU student teammate Alex Ling. Well I didn’t burn midnight oil for a long time since late twenties. I am writing this article at 1am  at this moment. But it’s always funny to learn from a new perspective.

There are more than 300 attendants from different universities. What a crowd! We are sitting all around the academic concourse. After sitting outside LTJ for more than 14 hours, I still can’t figure out what language my opposite team is speaking. Lol

Finally we got into the Final 3 out of 16 in the FinTech category (unfortunately lost to another team). We won the “Think Out of The Box” Award from Radica and The President’s 1 HKUST Award from HKUST. Booyahhhh!

But I was too tired to work in office today.  Well I have to admit that I’m a bit old for this kind of game.

I would like to thank for my teammate, Alex Ling, met in hackUST. He was a very strong coder in iOS. A bit surprised of the skill level that a student can achieve at this age. Without him we can’t make the miracle happened in 24 hours. Personally I can’t code in Swift. I’m a shit coder.
