ANNOUNCEMENT: Are high school students allowed at the event?

While this is primarily a college hackathon, we are accepting applications from high school students. You can fill out the Typeform for high school students above, where you will have to answer additional questions regarding your programming skill level and amount of experience.

We are planning to notify you by April 6th if you were accepted to attend the event -- so keep an eye on your email. If you have any questions or concerns about the form, please reach out to christopher@defhacks.io.


What is a hackathon?

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.

What should I bring to a hackathon?

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.

What should I do after I register?

After you register, try to find a team and start brainstorming ideas for the hackathon! You shouldn't start coding until the event, but feel free to brainstorm ideas, especially if a theme is released beforehand!

What is the hackathon's Code of Conduct?

This is an MLH Member Event, and this is their official Code of Conduct: http://mlh.io/code-of-conduct.

Do you offer travel reimbursement?

Unfortunately, we cannot offer travel reimbursement for participants.
