A hackathon is a 24-hour tech event for teams of students to learn new skills, build cool tech projects, and meet tons of other students and tech professionals. There's food, awesome workshops, and super cool swag. Best of all — it's completely free!
All current undergraduate, graduate, and high school students may attend HooHacks; you do not have to be 18+ to register. No coding experience is necessary! Non-STEM majors, first-time hackers, and beginner coders are welcomed and encouraged to join us!
If you are planning to compete for a prize, you may be in a team of 1-4 people. If you don't have one yet, no worries! We will have a team formation workshop before hacking begins.
HooHacks will be at the University of Virginia School of Engineering. More info about specific locations will be posted to the website and emailed to participants closer to the event. We will have buses traveling to and from the event. Check the bus schedule and reserve your seat here. If you require a travel reimbursement, please indicate on the registration form and we will contact you with more information.
A laptop, phone, ID, and chargers are necessary to bring. A reusable water bottle, sleeping bag and pillow (if you plan to sleep), change of clothes, toothbrush, toiletries, and an HDMI adapter (for judging) are recommended but not required.
Yes, you don't have to stay up for the full 24 hours! We will have air mattresses and a designated sleeping room for those who would like to sleep.
