Episode notes:

As a part of an effort to work with college students in school and universities, Stack Overflow is partnering with Major League Hacking (MLH) to recruit our first cohort of Student Ambassadors. These people will signify us on campus and prepared the ground in tackling challenges, incomes rewards, and planning out the way forward for this system. 

Our pizza fund occasions are open to college students within the US and Canada, and World Hack Weeks are open to all. You may be taught extra about tips on how to apply here.

ICYMI: Main League Hacking cofounder Jon Gottfried and Hackathon Neighborhood Supervisor Mary Siebert beforehand got here on the podcast to explain what a Main League Hackathon appears like (the succulents have been a shock).

In the present day’s Lifeboat badge goes to consumer Manquer for his or her reply to the query How can I upgrade Yii 1.x to Yii 2.0?.
