A great part of college is that almost everything is within walking distance. TAMUhack was only a five-minute walk for Cameron. So naturally, he went to check it out. 

TAMUhack changed his perception of software development. Cameron found his computer science classes boring, but at hackathons, software development was something magical that offered an escape from everyday life. Since TAMUhack, Cameron has attended 13 hackathons and has won prizes at five. 

So enthralled with hackathons, Cameron joined the organizing team at TAMUhack. As an organizer, he has helped work on their registration system, landing page, and hackathon strategy around company challenges and prizes. He has also spent time mentoring at HowdyHack 2019, the university’s beginner hackathon.

Cameron has gained internships at Statefarm and Microsoft, as well as lifelong friends directly through his involvement with hackathons. As well, they taught him how to architect and build every aspect of the software he needed to start his own company.

His favorite project was the Sustainability Index, the first place winner and winner of multiple company challenges at HackTX. This project provided a stock index aggregator that took into account not only financial factors like traditional stock prices, but also the environmental impact of a company, their treatment of employees, and a company’s stance on certain social issues. As a result, it allows people to invest in public companies who do good.
