A hackathon is an invention marathon. Participants work in teams to create awesome projects from scratch, learn new skills and have some fun along the way! All skill levels are very welcome.
Anyone who is a student or recent graduate and who is 16 years old or over
Yes! If you are 16 or 17 years old, you are welcome to come! But please make sure you have a place to stay overnight as you are not permitted to stay in the venue if underage.
Nothing. HackKing's is a free event, with great meals provided thanks to the generosity of our lovely sponsors.
Sure! We'll have gender-separated sleeping rooms available, but bring some things to make yourself comfortable.
Your laptop, any electronics you wish to use, chargers, comfortable clothes, toiletries and a sleeping bag or blanket and pillow. And of course, either your ID or your student ID.
You can hack with however many people you like! However, only teams of 4 or fewer are eligible to win prizes.
Only projects started at the hackathon will be eligible for prizes, as it would be unfair otherwise.
