All undergraduate and graduate students of any discipline are allowed to participate in our hackathon! You don't need to be a Computer Science or Computer Engineering major to join the event. in fact, we highly recommend you to join us and maybe learn a little about how to code! (Minimum age is 18, for consent reasons.)
An email will be sent regarding official team sign up information as we approach the event date. Until then make sure your entire team registers and sit tight!
You will need your school ID as a form of identification. You will also need to bring your own equipment (computers, chargers, etc) for working on your project during the hackathon and presenting at the end of the event.
Yes! We will provide food, snacks, and drinks for you all throughout the weekend, free of charge. Please note any special arrangements or dietary restrictions on your application so we can make sure to get you something you can eat!
Don't worry if you don't have an idea or a team planned before the event; a lot of people don't! We will have a team-meetup and idea-congregation segment at the start of the hacking, so you'll be able to start on a project in no time!
We ask that you provide a resume because our sponsors recruit from the event and want to see all of the cool projects that you have worked on and any work experience that you have. Show them why you are awesome and why they should hire you!
We have a team of mentors, comprised of industry professionals and CS/CEN upperclassmen, who will be providing 24/7 support for any team over the weekend, who needs help with planning how to start an idea or solve a nasty bug. We will have a Slack channel set up to provide quick support to anyone in need!
Yes there will be! At this moment (9/21/16) we will offer at most $100 in travel reimbursement.
This event would not be possible without the help of every each one of our sponsors! When you have time, please check out their table during our event.
