For one 4-day weekend, we are going to have 30 hours of hacking heaven.
No more than four participants per team.
No previous projects, only fresh ideas & designs.
You cannot leave from 10PM to 7AM.
No substances & weapons.
Hackathons are where your crazy ideas become reality. Build anything you want to build, from websites, apps, software, hardware, just about anything that comes out of your crazy mind. Just make it in the 30 hours you have!
Anybody! Our Hackathon specifically targets high schoolers, but everybody & anybody is welcome! Ideas don't grow on trees, so it's perfectly fine if you don't have an idea when you come to MVHacks. Most hackers have no clue of what they will build, yet many still win!
No problem-o! No experience required! But if you're a complete freshie, we have lessons to help you get started! The main goal of a hackathon is to learn new things & meet new people!
Unfortunately, as high schoolers, our hardware support is limited. Contact us for more details regarding your specific goals so we can set you up best.
No, not really; but it would be awesome if you did! Since we are using challenge post to submit hacks, you can submit off-site if you decide to not attend. Also keep in mind that the hackathon will be closed off to all inbound or outbound traffic from 10PM to 7AM, so unless you hack overnight better at home, stay, & have some fun!
Great! This will be a fun AND novel experience for you! As mentioned before, no experience is required. A hackathon is a great place to meet new people of many types, & learn a lot from the entire experience & people met. We would be honored to make your first hackathon MVHacks.
Nope. Nee. Nie. Ne. No. Na. Ni. Non. Nahi. Nein. Nai. You MUST start from a blank slate of ideas & designs.
Weren't we clear enough!? Nada. Zip. Zero. Zilch. Completely FREE! All food, T-shirts, goodies are all free; in fact the chance of gaining money is higher than the chance of losing it. (0%)
A maximum of four participants. No more. It's perfectly fine to be alone, too.
Get a ride! Use the chat in the App to schedule carpools! You can also use Uber & Lyft to get get rides.
The minimum: A laptop, toiletries, & your brain. The maximum: All your technology! Oh, don't forget your brain.
