An extremely energetic Hackaton, 'HackPro 2015', was held at the CS faculty during the weekend (May 26th-27th 2015). The programing marathon was initiated by Sarai Duek, a master's student who is the head of the 'WomenTechPRO'- the women community of the CS faculty. Sarai was very successful in creating gender equality in the event, since 50% of the 70 participants were female students.
After 30 intensive hours of programing and creating, all the participating groups presented their work to a group of judges. Among the judges were representatives of Microsoft, Intel and Check Point. These three companies also generously sponsored the event. The Hackaton was considered a big success which created a strong foundation for future co-operations between all of the participants.
