At hackathons, you have the ability to build on any idea you can come up with. Web design, frontend/backend development, iOS and Android apps, hardware hacks, and server management are just a few of the possibilities!


Workshops, tech talks, and access to mentors allows both beginning and experienced students to learn new technologies. Head over to our sponsor tables and find out about potential internship and career opportunities!


Working alongside equally passionate people allows you to become encouraged to keep building and learning. You’ll be amazed what you can accomplish as a team.
