All undergraduate and graduate students are welcome. High school students should contact us.
Required for all attendees: valid student ID for admission (name must match registration information), your laptop, your brain. Also, comfy clothes and any other items you would need within a 24 hr time frame.
Teams should be at most 4 people. You can work alone but teams are HIGHLY recommended.
"Anything goes!" Web, desktop, mobile, and hardware projects are all welcome. (All hacks should be tech-related, though.) Projects will be judged based on creativity, technical difficulty, polish, and usefulness.
We strongly discourage building off of existing projects you've worked on. Using third–party APIs and libraries is encouraged, as long as they're accessible by everyone else as well.
ADMISSION IS FREE! Food, beverages, and a sleeping area will be provided! You just have to get yourself here and we will take care of the rest! :)
The term "hackathon" draws its name from hacking in the sense of "hacking something together in an evening", not "hacking into someone's computer and stealing their Excel spreadsheets." This event will only support legal and ethical creative teamwork. No illegal computer security work will be performed or condoned.
