What is a hackathon?
A hackathon is an event where people come together to create a technological solution to a modern day problem! But for our hackathon, you don't even need to know how to code! In addition, we'll have many learning opportunities and events during the hackathon, so we'll be there to help you out!
“I collect memories. I look for opportunities to try new things, go to new places, and meet new people all the time.”
Why participate in a hackathon?
Because it's a great way to get hands-on experience with coding, design, and it's a way to design a project that really passions you! In addition, you'll get to meet new people, learn new things and have fun all in just one weekend! Pretty good deal, right?
“Life is trying things to see if they work.”
What if I don't have a team?
That's alright! We have specific events before the hackathon to help everyone find teams! In addition, we recommend that team sizes do not exceed four people, but we can make exceptions if neccesary!
“A friend may be waiting behind a stranger’s face.”
Is there a cost to attend?
It costs no more than a bit of your weekend! Other than that, it's free! Yay! In addition, if you cannot make the entire event, you may also join to attend any workshops you might like to see.
Time is a created thing. To say “I don’t have time” is to say “I don’t want to.”
What will I need to participate?
You will need wifi and an electronic device, such as a computer or a smartphone. If you plan to code, a computer works best, but any device you have can work. In addition, you will need to make a discord account and to sign up on our Devpost page. If you need any extra help, please don't hesitate to contact us!
