Gergely Imreh, Community Lead/Developer at, said:

"We've really enjoyed working with students at Hack City. Everyone hacking was a very curious, fast learner, and it was a pleasure to figure out new technology with them. Whether or not they've finished a whole project, there were a lot of very creative ideas going around. The whole event was a lot more smooth sailing than most hackathons have been, even though it wasn't any less intense. Cheers to the organizers!"
