A hackathon is an invention marathon. Programmers, designers, builders and more come together to learn, build, and share their creations over the course of a few days. Hackathons are not limited to computer science majors — anyone who has an interest in technology and is eager to learn can participate in a hackathon. Not to be confused with illegal and unauthorized programming, "hacking" in this context means quickly and intelligently creating a real application that others can use.
A hackathon is completely free! In fact, all meals will be provided, and you'll be sure to walk out of the weekend with plenty of swag from our sponsors.
Carney will be open overnight for hacking, but you are not required to stay overnight. Feel free to ask a BC student for accommodation!
Yes! This event is open to students of all levels and backgrounds. Students new to programming are encouraged to come, hone their skills, and learn something new.
While most participants will have some level of programming ability, people of all backgrounds can contribute. This includes designers, entrepreneurs, and beginners looking to learn.
While you are allowed to work on an existing project, you are encouraged to begin something new the day of the event. Rapid innovation is in the spirit of a hackathon, and only new hacks will be considrered for prizes.
Judges from BC and our sponsors will determine prize winners based on the criteria of creativity, complexity, and utility of your hack.
Nope! We welcome students from all universities. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accomodate high school students this year.
We want to ensure a positive experience for all participants. We encourage you to read the Code of Conduct.
