What is a hackathon?

  • A hackathon is a coding event where a group of people get into teams of 1-4 people and code and build a project in 24 hrs. 

What should I bring ?

  • You should bring a laptop and charger, your student ID, a change of clothes and anything else you’ll need for a weekend of hacking.

Who can participate?

  • Students at the high school, CEGEP, undergraduate and graduate levels are welcome!

What if I’ve never been to a hackathon before?

  • This hackathon is beginner-friendly, and the perfect first hackathon! Our goal is to provide you with the tools (mentors, workshops and online resources) to create something you’ll be proud of. 

What if I don’t have a team?

  • No worries, we’ll have time allocated for finding a team and discussing ideas with other hackers.

How much will it cost?

  • Attending the hackathon is free and we provide food and drinks as well. You only need to worry about getting here. 

When and where is the hackathon taking place?

  • The hackathon will be taking place the weekend of January 18-19 2020 at MILA.
