Frequently Asked Questions

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is an event dedicated to gathering both aspiring and experienced computer programmers to work upon and create a product, based on a given question or theme. This key question or theme is what diversifies hackathons from one another. A typical hackathon ranges from a 24 to 72 hour event, filled to the brim with immersive workshops and guest speakers. During this time, participants use a combination of their newfound knowledge along with past experiences to come up with a product. In a hackathon, participants can decide to work in teams or individually. Finally, prizes are offered to participants with the best projects at the end of the event.

This is done by holding a series of workshops and seminars featuring guest speakers, with the chance to win big by creating and pitching your project to judges.
