      Hi Sujee,
      It was great to be there with you champs. First hackathon was not only informative and helpful but also insightful. I installed hadoop vm as per instructions in emails. First hackathon became more interesting with Krish, who has industry knowledge and experience and was very helpful with our simple/technical question(s).

      As you mentioned in your email, future hackathons should be structured. Let us know when do you have next one planned.
