July 20th–21st, 2019
Working together with a team, you will have 24 hours to create something: website, app, game, anything. You’ll then present your creation to a panel of judges.
For the beginner coders, we provide workshops. These workshops are designed so you can learn a new skill. For veteran hackers, industry programmers will be available as mentors. These mentors are a way to learn what happens in real life.
Meals, snacks, and swag are all provided — free of charge. Special breakouts are planned to give your mind (and fingers!) a break.
