“I wanted to congratulate and thank everyone for the organization and management of the Hackathon, there was not a single moment where I did not feel welcomed, listened to or supported by the staff and tutors, given the scale of the event my expectations they were already high, but you still managed to overcome them, surprising me with the availability of materials and tools, with the patience and availability and with the food and drink offered. Really thank you not only for this opportunity, but for all the emotions that this experience made me feel, emotions that, if they are positive, it is thanks to you. I hope in the future to be able to participate in future editions of the event.”
