Veritas at LA Hacks 2018: a fun-filled, tech-driven weekend

On March 30th through April 1st, LA Hacks 2018 hosted over 1000 of the brightest high school and college students from across the United States. The hacking commenced in the UCLA Pauley Pavilion at 11:00 on Friday evening and proceeded until Sunday morning – I was blown away by the amazing innovation that took place in 36 hours!

Students were invited to attend tech-focused workshops and hear from industry panelists on topics in diversity, education, health, and entertainment. The event was intense, and LA Hacks organizers provided food, entertainment, and swag to keep the hackers motivated.

The 150+ projects submitted were judged based on creativity, technical difficulty, and usefulness, and the leading teams’ projects highlighted computer vision, VR, machine learning, and Internet of Things technologies. Winners were able to take home cool prizes, like drones and gaming consoles.

And in support of Veritas, I was able to meet and speak with students about the company and our exciting hiring and internship opportunities.

Thank you to the organizers of LA Hacks for putting together a creative and inspiring event – and to all of the students that stopped by our booth. I hope to see you on our campus soon!
