It's a grand gathering of people to make their ideas come to life. Think out of the box, try new technologies, ask questions, make mistakes, discover a new language, and have fun! We will be following Major League Hacking's Code of Conduct. Check out their video explaining what a hackathon is here.
Don't sweat it! We've purposefully designed WHACK to offer an encouraging and supportive environment. At WHACK, you'll quickly learn from our workshops and army of mentors, as well as your team members and other students.
The application deadline is Sunday, October 23rd at 11:59pm EST.
We welcome any undergraduate college student 18+ to participate in WHACK. It's important to keep in mind that we are looking to create a welcoming and empowering space for women and other underrepresented identities in tech. If you have any questions about this, please contact us!
We have mentors available for everyone! Just go into the one of the mentor channels and ask your questions. You can also ask questions directly to our sponsors' channels.
Upon registration for WHACK via our Google form, all hackers are welcome to come.
Hackers can decide to register in teams of 2-4 people, but everyone must submit
individual applications. Members of teams who apply together will all receive
the same acceptance decision.
We'll also be facilitating team-formation activities before and during the event to help you find teams. Although you're welcome to hack on your own, only teams are eligible to win prizes.
Trust us, you won't be hungry at WHACK! We'll provide all meals on Saturday, and Sunday breakfast & lunch. We'll also have a snack table, food surprises, and coffee throughout the hackathon. We work hard to accommodate all dietary restrictions and make healthy options available.
If you have a special circumstance, please indicate so on your application. WHACK is ultimately a resource for you to learn, connect with others, and meet mentors in industry, so you'll get more out of it if you can stay for the whole event.
