It's a hackathon meant for both high school and college students. We want to give everyone the opportunity to test their coding skills and develop new ones, while also getting the chance to eat, network, and get free swag.
A hackathon is an event, typically lasting several hours (or even days), in which a large number of people meet to code and show off their products. You can find a longer explanation here!
Any student in high school or college is welcome to attend! If you have any questions, email us at email@example.com. You don't have to be from the US to participate (travel reimbursement will not be provided).
We recommend working in a team, but you have the option to work as an individual. Teams are limited to 4 people––try to work with someone new!
Of course! Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your level of experience and your level of education.
You learn! We are open to hackers of all coding levels, whether you've never heard of a function or you've made millions from apps on the App Store. Mentors and workshops will be there to help beginners.
Please bring your own computer and its charger, your ID, and power strips (recommended). The event costs nothing - meals and swag are provided for free! Also consider bringing a sleeping bag and/or pillow.
We'd love to talk to you! Please feel free to contact us at email@example.com - a Defhacks representative will reach out within 48 hours.
Don't hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org! We will try to answer your questions as best as we can.
