About this Episode
"The point of it is not always to make a business, of course. It's to have that experience."
Karin and Kelly chat with Melissa Schmitz about what it's like to win a hackathon, her experience working with virtual reality, and her decision to pivot from natural science to data science.
Topics discussed include: using virtual reality to train people on heavy equipment, how to succeed at your first hackathon, and building blocks of programming
