Code Institute Teams Up with Name.com for its First Hackathon

What happens when you give a bunch of developers some beer, the domain name dolphin.army, and two hours to create a website?

Something along the lines of Apocalypse Now mixed with Flipper is of course the answer…..from a company that translates dolphin speak into English, a supplier of dolphin fighting style training equipment, and an attachable fin for your doll (doll-fin…get it?). Hats off to the teams though, many of which weren’t experienced developers, who were able to build a (semi-functional) website on the fly.

Massive thanks to the team from Name.com as well – Jared Ewy, Alex Kehr, and Ashley Forker – who traveled all the way from Denver, Colorado to lead the hackathon.
