Founded in 2017, SLO Hacks is an entirely student-run organization. We host multiple hackathon events year-round and we pride ourselves on giving students the opportunity to bring ideas to life with collaboration, technology, and hacking!
A hackathon is an event where students with common interests from all over the nation come together and collaborate on a project over a 36-hour period.
All college students (both graduate and undergraduate) are welcome! No prior experience is necessary.
If you can think it, you can build it. We encourage students to build technological projects, whether they be software or hardware.
Not a problem. There will be time at the beginning of the hackathon to find other students who don't have a team yet!
Bring your ID, computer, and sleeping bag (optional). All the necessary equipment for hardware projects will be provided. We'll also have a hardware lab with a variety of devices and parts.
Food and admission are absolutely FREE! Buses will be provided for students traveling within California.
Please refer to the MLH code of conduct.
We will be providing buses for Californian hackers, and case-by-case flight reimbursements for out-of-state hackers. Check your email upon acceptance for more details!
