Hackathon

Cronkite News is hosting a virtual Audio Hackathon to give all Arizona State University students the opportunity to design and experience for smart devices.

The hackathon will provide an opportunity for students to create their own, innovative audible commands and designs, which make up a new Alexa skill.

Schedule for the week of the Audio Hackathon:

  • March 8-9: Cronkite News kicks off the Audio Hackathon where students can attend virtual workshops to learn how to develop a smart device skill. Each hour-long session begins at 9:30 a.m. Recorded sessions will be posted on the Cronkite News website for those unable to attend.
  • March 12: Students submit final skills by midnight for judging.
  • March 19: Judges announce the three winners, who will receive Echo Shows.
