The focus of Hack @Brown is learning, not competition. This is the first hackathon for most participants. That made having a light-weight and easy to use tool essential. On a compressed timeframe, students wanted to focus on practicing new skills and visually expressing their ideas rather than learning the intricacies of how a tool worked.
