"I really enjoyed the actual skill I learned the most which has introduced me to something new I never would have learned otherwise. Seeing a bunch of random code and letters turn into an actual website is really cool, and a skill I now possess. By the end of the program I will have a personal site and will have worked on designing sites for some other cool challenges."

"My favorite part about HackCville is learning a new skill with a group of like-minded but unique peers. The community feel and new friends are just the icing on the cake to the phenomenal program I was in this semester.
