  • More than 500 students from Brown, RISD, and colleges and universities across the country descended upon Brown’s Sayles Hall for 24 straight hours of intensive software coding and app-building during the annual Hack at Brown.

    Hackathons are notoriously competitive, but this popular student-run event aims to be accessible to all. While many other hackathons accept applicants based on coding experience, Hack@Brown selects participants through a weighted random lottery. Preference is given to applicants who are from underrepresented groups in computer science as well as first-time hackers.

  • New England Patriots fullback James Develin ‘10 will be competing in his third consecutive (and fourth total) Super Bowl today, after winning the 2014 and 2016 championships.

    The engineering concentrator played defensive line for the Brown Bears, twice being named to the All-Ivy team. He is known as one of the best fullbacks in the NFL, playing a major role in Bill Belichick’s offense at an often underappreciated position.

    Develin’s path to the NFL is one of perseverance; he went undrafted in the 2010 NFL Draft following his graduation. Instead of abandoning his dreams, he tried out for the Cleveland Browns, unfortunately failing to make the team. Instead of giving up, he signed with the Oklahoma Yard Dawgz of the Arena Football League, appearing in one game before joining the outdoor Florida Huskers, where he converted from the line to fullback.

    He got his first NFL contract in 2010, when the Cincinnati Bengals signed him to their practice squad, where he remained until the end of the 2011 season, when he was released. In 2012, he signed with the Patriots, joining their practice squad. He was named the Pats’ starting fullback before the 2013 season, where he has remained ever since, one of the longest standing starters on the modern Patriots dynasty.
