Frequently Asked Questions

What is a hackathon?

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!

Do I need a team?

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.

Can I sleep?

Yes, you don't have to stay up for the full 24 hours!
