What is a hackathon?
A hackathon is a marathon software and hardware product creation event. At Hack@NSIT, you can look forward to amazing guest speakers, helpful workshops, tons of skilled mentors, and, of course, fun games and great food.
I’ve never been to a hackathon and I’m nervous.
Have no fear — Hack@NSIT is, first and foremost, a fun learning experience! We will have beginner workshops held by professors and industry professionals in web design, mobile applications, backends, cloud content management, and more! Our goal is for you to leave Hack@NSIT having learned something.
Who can attend?
Any undergraduate or graduate student at any university in the world!
What should I bring?
Bring your student ID for entrance, and a government-issued ID. You’ll also need your laptop and charger for hacking.
Will this cost me money?
Nope! We’ll provide all the food, swag, and fun times you need to have an amazing weekend.
Is there a theme?
Yes!, there would be themes which will be announced at the event.
Can I use old code?
You may use all the publicly available code and APIs that you want but the code you will be judged on at the end of the hackathon must be new.
