32-hour Coding Marathon Taking Place at William & Mary

More than 200 people are taking part in a 32-hour computer coding marathon at William & Mary.

The college’s Association of Computing Machinery is hosting the marathon this weekend.

The chair of the group just won $20,000 for a first place finish in a hack-a-thon sponsored by Dominion Enterprises. Hack-a-thons are intense coding marathons, where teams try to build the best app, web component or hardware enhancement.
