The second hackathron of the year
- This hackathron is held in florida state university, Tallassee
- before the check in, I found a restaurant that sells biscuit sandwish
- However, the only thing I want to say about the food is …. it sucks.
After arrive at florida state university
- check in is the same as the other hackathron, just show them your student id.
- Seems I am the only one that fly from chicago and arrive first. Those guys seems to be more excited than I am.
walk around the building
- The hackathron is held in the science library.
- Actually there are not much books and feels like more a living rather than a library.
- Some guys are setting up n64 game console and I feel really weird to see this kind of old stuff here.
- One of the most important thing during this hackathron is that Apple company is sponsoring. And they are also looking for intern too.
- The opening ceremony is held somewhere else.
- Oh my god, finally comes some rice not pizza and sandwish.
- However, the quantity is limit and I eat 6 apple, drink 10 bottles of water during the weekend.
- I hate the hackathron that do not provide enough food!!!
- The food looks like some kind of mexican food or indiana food.
- They actually provide a lot of hardware for you to play with.
- 3D printer
- leap motion
- oculus rift
- This time, due to I am not quite interested in the project they provide during the team forming. I decided to work alone.
- It is lucky that I found a room for myself.
about the project
- I write a chrome plugin to analyse the comment and visualize it.
- I was targeting the prize that provide by a sponsor which is an insurance company.
- Althrough I do not get the prize, I still think my project is much better than the one is awarded.
- So I am not help that company to promote by writing they name every where HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

after finishing the hackathron, Travel begin!
- I fly to miami and stay in a house book using Airbnb
- I have to say Airbnb and uber, lyft is one of the greatest thing invented in the past 2 years.
- The house is located in 1450 meridian Ave, just next to Miami beach.
- The house is so nice that it provide almost everything I need.
- Here are some pictures of it.
- Well, due to I am confident to cook seafood better than most of the restaurant, I decide to go the fish market in the morning and buy myself some lobster, snow crab and king crab!
- The Australian lobster is so big and taste fantastic!
- I always wants to go to the gun store and shot some guns!
- The gun store I found is called “Lock & Load”
- not far away from Miami downtown.
Here is some gun display on the wall
- Century Club
- Sniper! My favorate one
Try the guns!
- FN HERSTAL SCAR 17 HEAVY(.308)
- FN HERSTAL SAW M249 – BELF FED
- BARRETT 50 CAL SNIPER EIFLE
- The sniper is really loud and smell really bad.
- But it feel badass when shooting it!
- The coach give me the bullet shell of the snipper
- FN HERSTAL SCAR 17 HEAVY(.308)
Vizcaya Museum & Gardens
- After playing the guns, I go to the museum to get some fresh air.
- Being a student is really nice because you have discount every where in US. HAHAHAHA
- This place is built by some one that wants to duplicate the European style.
- Althrough I do not know much about those stuff, but I walk in such a big house and garden is really enjoyable.
- The only famous thing I saw from Internet that little havana is Versailles cuba restaurant
- The food there is ok, but not as good as I can imaged
- Accidentally encounter this street on my way to the beach.
- A lot of restaurant, not much to see.
Some interesting shop
- Well, I am not expected to see this kind of old fashion shop in US.
Miami Beach and South Beach
- Well, The sand, water here is really good.
- However it’s a pity that the temperature is not high enough to swim.
- And no bikini !!!! The only reason I want to come to the beach is to see some bikini!
- Except for the sand and water, the beach is not much excited because the beach in China has everything except the soft sand and clean water.
- But it is quite enjoyable when walk on the sand.
in the miami airport
- It is quite funny when I see a AD that use japanese game charactor to advertise.
- And the company is LV!
