This past weekend, Wyncoders participated in the Comcast NBCUniversal Hackathon.
Miami Cohort 9 graduates Michael Gregory and Christina Nguyen were a part of the grand prize winning team, Pop Up Shot, alongside employees of Sapient Nitro (Manny Macias, Efrem Silverman, Ruben Veiga, Andrew Barrocas & Steve Cucinotta). They participated in Challenge 1, which asked teams to make GolfNow, a Golf Channel product providing tee time deals at over 6,000 courses worldwide, more accessible to golfers unaware about the service.
Miami Cohort 10 graduate, Denise Meagher, was a part of team Sprout. They won NBC News’ Challenge 4, asking participants to increase engagement and utility for its video content across platforms.
Hat’s off to all the Wyncoders that spent their entire weekend innovating with NBCUniversal and their technology partners!
