With a new entrepreneurship student group and funding, Johns Hopkins has more ways for students to get involved in turning tech into products.

Hackathons are another important, if sleepless, piece of that effort.

And they’re getting notice. In a Medium post, Major League Hacking’s Nicholas Walsh highlights two Hopkins hackathons from the 2016-17 season.

HopHacks, which draws students from all over the Mid-Atlantic for 36 hours of creation, is among the hackathons on the list. Walsh notes that an Asian comics translator created at the event was one of his favorites.

MedHacks, the student-run medical hackathon which was held during Baltimore Innovation Week, got a shout for efforts to build teams of people with diverse skill sets. Just after the post came out, MedHacks dropped the dates for this year’s edition.

BitCamp, the three-year-old hackathon held at the University of Maryland in College Park, had the largest attendance at 1,100 people and the most expansive venue in the Xfinity Center, Walsh writes.
