What is a hackathon?
A hackathon is a competitive educational event in which students come together to develop an idea for a project into a real product. MVHacks will provide hackers with educational resources, including seminars and mentors, and an environment that will enable their success.
How much does it cost?
It is completely free! All food, swag, and prizes are provided at no charge.
Do I need programming experience?
No — this is a fantastic learning opportunity! Hackers can expect to be able to attend educational workshops run by industry professionals in addition to experienced adult mentors to help them learn and succeed.
Who can attend?
All high school students are eligible to attend MVHacks as hackers. Interested in attending but not a high school student? Consider signing up to be a mentor.
What do I need?
For the event, all you need is your school ID, laptop, charger, and a desire to hack!
Do I need a team?
Teams of up to 4 are allowed. You may work as an individual, but we recommend collaborating. There will be a team mixer at the start of the hackathon.
What are the rules?
Be nice, respectful, and have fun! Hackers are expected to behave appropriately and safely at all times, and abide by the MLH Code of Conduct.
