The Buildathon is a hands-on session to help individuals or teams at the Law School to start designing, mapping, and building new applications.
We will take you through the basics of what kinds of web or mobile apps you can build, what steps are involved, and get you started on them.
The goal is to get you equipped with a plan of action, some initial designs and development plans, and a strategy for what you can do next.
