Frequently Asked Questions

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is a science fair-esque program in which a large number of people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming, and it will allow coders to speed code to make intensive software projects that are creative and unique. You don’t have to be a programmer to join these hackathons, and over the course of the hackathon we hope to create a fun and engaging atmosphere that can help create an excited community of students.

What if I don't know how to code?

Don’t worry! Hackathons are inclusive to all levels of coding experience, and as long as you have an interest in learning about programming; hackathons are for you. To get a beginner’s idea of how to code you can visit websites such a codeacademy or treehouse. ur goal is to have a fun time, allow for our coders to meet new people, and form connections throughout our community.
