HackNC 2017 is going to take place from November 3rd through 5th in Woollen Gymnasium at UNC-Chapel Hill!
We are a MLH sponsored event, so please note that we follow the MLH code of conduct, which can be found here
A hackathon is a weekend of fun and learning. You'll become a better programmer, meet awesome people, and make cool stuff. There will also be opportunities to win cool prizes and network with our sponsors.
As long as you'll be 18 or an enrolled student at UNC by November 3rd, 2017, we would love for you to come to HackNC. Unfortunately (because of the incredible amount of paperwork involved) we won't be able to accept anyone under the age of 18 not currently enrolled at UNC
High schoolers over 18, undergraduates, and graduate students are welcome to participate as hackers. Professionals should check out mentorship.
Anyone can attend HackNC. Our admission criteria doesn't include your level of experience. However, the registration system is still under construction, join our mailing list to get updates!
You bet! MLH is providing the full hardware lab. In addition, we will have soldering kits and other assorted components, Arduinos, Raspberry Pis, sensors, and more Pebbles than you can wear on four limbs...
Professionals are welcome to join as mentors, sponsors, or lecturers. If you want to come as a mentor, contact us!
Definitely! HackNC and the UNC Computer Science Department are committed to making computer science a more diverse field. Inclusiveness is a top priority for us, and we've been beginner-friendly from the start.
You may use all the publicly available code and APIs that you want, but the code you will be judged on at the end of the hackathon must be new.
You should do it! Bring your own pillow and sleeping bag or blankets. There will be a sleeping space available Friday and Saturday nights. More info available on our travel page.
If you want to come, we want to help get you here. We will have a limited number of reimbursements for carpooling or vanpooling.
Don’t worry - we’ll provide six full meals throughout the hackathon and there will be plenty of snacks in between. You won’t be hungry.
Please join our mailing list above, and we will send out information later this fall.
If you're at Georgia Tech or in that part of Atlanta: you bet! Join our mailing list and watch for more information as we get closer to HackNC.
