What is LHD?

LHD stands for Local Hack Day, which is a community oriented hackathon.

Who can come?

All college AND high school students are welcome! No prior experience is necessary. In fact, we encourage beginners to come out and learn new skills.

What can I build?

We encourage students to build all sorts of technological projects. At SLO Hacks, we believe that if you can think it, you can build it.

What if I don't have a team?

No worries, time will be allocated for students without a team to form one with other students!

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?

LHD is completely FREE! Food and drinks will be provided.

How will I get there?

As this event is hosted for the local community, students are encouraged to find their own rides to the Cal Poly campus.
