No coding experience? No problem. We have industry experts and experienced students hosting workshops and tech talks perfect for beginners and advanced students interested in exploring different topics.
We have mentors readily available for one-on-one help with your project and tons of resources. Grab some friends or meet new people and build something cool!
HooHacks has free food, exciting speakers, free swag from company sponsors, and tons of fun activities. Meet some new people and enjoy a Smash Bros. tournament, midnight yoga, and great food!
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 at least 16 years of age may attend HooHacks. 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.
Due to the current situation surrounding COVID-19, we have no available sleeping arrangements for our hackers. However, we welcome all local Charlottesville hackers to attend, as we do have an in-person option with food and swag!
HooHacks 2022 is a hybrid event. All local Charlottesville students 18 years and older are encouraged to attend in-person but may attend virtually. Those under 18 or outside the Charlottesville area may only attend virtually. For those attending in person, there will be free food and merch available, and masks will be mandatory.
