Los Altos Hacks is a student-run annual high school hackathon open to everyone, especially beginner hackers!
I was the Tech Director for Los Altos Hacks for 3 years (2016-2018). Each year, the organizing team consisted of three main branches: (1) sponsorship, (2) tech, and (3) operations. For the tech team, I managed a group of ~6 people to build the website each year, as well as any miscellaneous tech that is needed at the event.
For Los Altos Hacks III, my team and I created a check-in iOS app that allowed organizers to check hackers in at the beginning of the hackathon, for meals, and for raffles/prizes. To do this, I ordered nametags for each hacker, which would be attached to a QR code with a unique hacker ID.
These were given to each hacker/mentor/sponsor/organizer, with their name, school, and a unique QR code.
