The Iron Yard – Atlanta recently held an internal hackathon for its students. They worked on small teams consisting of developers from each of the three classes – Rails, Mobile, and Front End Engineering. They got to experience building out a project from conception to prototype while working with developers using a different language from theirs! Rails Engineering student Andrew House posted these thoughts after the weekend:

I look at things very logically, they had a much better perspective on design and user experience. I had a great team and more importantly had an absolute blast.
Collaboration is a hallmark of being a student at The Iron Yard. Read the full post here!
