Hackillinois' first virtual hackathon


HackIllinois, an open-source Hackathon at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, hosted their first virtual summer hackathon on August 7 - 15, 2020. The main focus for the event was creating tools to improve virtual education. The event was hosted through Discord with live YouTube guest panels. For this website, I collaborated with Anne Zulkarnain to create a visually appealing and exciting experience for attendees as well as HackIllinois' systems team to bring our designs to life.
