Please submit all projects through our DevPost. We ask you to submit a 2-3 minute video demo of your project. Our judges will stop watching after 3 minutes.
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 deadline to apply is the midnight of October 31, 2021.
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.
All hackers are welcome to come once registered for the event.
