Hackathons allow you to create your craziest ideas! You will work in a team, of up to four people, for 36 hours to create a project that addresses a theme. There are no restrictions, so let your imagination run wild!
We encourage students of all experience levels to attend. We will have workshops led by industry professionals for you to experiment with new technologies. Why not get started on your project?
We welcome any high school student to attend. Unfortunately, college or middle school students are not eligible.
HackVH is completely free! However, you will need an internet connection and a computer to work on.
Don't worry! Many participants don't have a complete team before the event. We will have a dedicated channel where you can find other hackers and team up!
