Okey so this is cool. The hackathon project I did with a group is launching off into the real world. People are interested. Much of this is because my partners are super good at networking and presenting. We went to a brain health summit the other day (it’s a tremor-detecting app). There were a bunch of professionals there and we presented to them. By that I mean they talked and I looked pretty. Then they kept on networking and talking to people and we presented again to get a grant. (they talk, I look pretty) We need $$$ for a hippa-compliant server.
I’m very impressed at how they are good leaders and by watching I am getting all those leadership development points. I think this project is good for the community because it’s for patients so bam service engagement. Actually they plan to commercialize but it’s still good for everyone. Watching these people with their unique skills, my Global Awareness has been raised.
There’s a lot of stuff to know even just in the field of computer science. 2 guys on my team are super good with coding servers and web pages, I don’t know anything about that… I can make script files? Very good script files. Outside the field, my other 2 partners know a lot about the neuroscience behind the app and the ideas were surprisingly necessary. And everyone is better at talking to people then me. Social skills seem hard, I hope that this trend will continue.
