"I enjoyed every second of it. Makers were delivering feature after feature, and tackling new domains. Plus, the organisers supported us to meet new people and bond over a constant supply of food. It really makes a difference seeing ideas and partnerships come to life."

- Angela Mao

"It was tense and challenging to set yourself the goal of delivering something in 48 hours. As we got closer to the end, the feeling turned to exhilaration when we realised we had built something literally from nothing and started to see its possibilities."

- Paul Tran
