Hack an amazing website


Who can participate?

Are you a student? Do you want make cool things? Great. Can't wait to meet you!

Can I work on my project before the event?

No, we'd really like it if you started a new project for the hackathon. Take a blank canvas and paint a masterpiece!

How big should my team be?

We suggest that participants work in teams of four. If you'd like to be on a team but can't find anyone to work with you, you can sign up as an individual and we'll find a team for you.

What should I bring?

Bring your laptop, cell phone, chargers, sleeping bag, pillow, change of clothes (nerdy shirts are preferred), toiletries, and, of course, your creativity.

Should my project be hardware or software?

We accept both hardware and software projects, so show your talents in the medium of your choosing!

Anything I should leave at home?

Please don't bring firearms or other weapons, alcohol, illegal drugs, soldering or similar equipment, animals (no matter how adorable), and outside food. There will be lots of food, don't worry.
