What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is an event where students with common interests from all over the nation come together and collaborate on a project over a 24-hour period.

Who can come?

All college students (both graduate and undergraduate) are welcome! No prior experience is necessary.

What can I build?

If you can think it, you can build it. We encourage students to build technological projects, whether they be software or hardware.

What if I don't have a team or idea?

Not a problem. There will be time to find other students who don't have a team yet!

What should I bring?

Bring your ID, computer, and sleeping bag (optional). All the necessary equipment for hardware projects will be provided.

How much does it cost?

Food and admission are absolutely FREE! Commute will be free for students traveling within California.

Is there a code of conduct?

Please refer to the MLH website.

How will I get there?

We will be reimbursing hackers for their transportation within California. Check your email upon acceptance for more details!

Ready for an
unforgettable weekend?
