Attended my first hackathon this weekend. Had a blast and even won a prize for being voted by other hackers as the best/most interesting project. Had a blast and I will definitely be going to more hackathons soon :) Just wanted to share some positivity for those of you who are thinking of going to your first hackathon

    The hackathon was physics themed so we made a billiards simulation and then got an AI to play it.

    For those who are interested I will likely make the code available soon

    Here it is! This is the AI training on a more difficult angled shot. Basically it is trying to hit the ball into the red target. It still isn't very pretty and a lot of work needs to be done. Just let me know if y'all want to know more about it :) https://imgur.com/a/D9fn71S

    @sudocode Thanks man! I'll be working on some improvements soon when I finish this semester. (More balls, better sprites, and hopefully use a genetic algorithm for better results, right now it's just using a simple MLP network)
