HACKDARTMOUTH IV

April 14-15th, 2017

Dartmouth College

{ ABOUT }

We’ve really come a long way since our first hackathon. After three iterations of HackDartmouth and our inaugural HackDay last spring, we’re more excited than ever to innovate this year!

This spring, HackDartmouth IV will again combine experiential learning with friendly competition. With company-sponsored workshops and the chance to develop and refine skills, we’re bringing hundreds of students from across the nation to learn, hack, and create for a weekend.

The day of the event features twenty-four hours of coding, swag, and amazing prizes! Mark your calendars for April 14-15, 2018 and check out some of the projects from our past hackathons in the meantime!

/* FAQ */


func what_is_a_hackdartmouth() {

HackDartmouth is an event in which groups of hackers divided into teams develop a product. Programmers get together to build something from scratch, be it a website, app, or some other product of their imagination. There will be lots of food and prizes, and opportunities for beginners to learn!

}
func who_can_attend() {

Any university student (graduate or undergraduate) is welcome to participate! We also admit high school students with parental permission. Anyone and everyone is welcome to come and see what participants are working on, though, so feel free to swing by.

}
func ok_if_no_experience() {

That's completely fine! You'll have plenty of opportunity to pick the brains of talented students around you. We will also have workshops the previous day for you to learn something new.

}
func require_idea_or_team() {

Nope! Although you can sign up with teammates, you can also sign up as an individual, and we will help place you on a team.

}
func what_to_build() {

You can build whatever you want: websites, programs, mobile apps, anything! However, all code must be written during the hackathon - feel free to use open source libraries and APIs.

}
func num_people_per_team() {

We recommend working in teams of 3-4 people, though participants in the past have worked solo or in pairs as well. However, if your team would like to submit your project for prize consideration, we have a hard limit of 4 members per team.

}
func what_to_bring?() {

Laptop, cellphone, chargers. Please don't bring alcohol, drugs, or soldering equipment.

}
func what_can_I_win() {

A panel of judges will decide on the winning hacks based on criteria of creativity, usefulness, technical difficulty, and form. The top prizes are TBA.

}
func not_a_hacker() {

You can help by sponsoring the event. You can also spread the word about this event to students, friends, and media.

}
func deadline_to_register() {

Students may register up until the day of the event.

}
func get_to_dartmouth() {

Travel reimbursements will be determined on a case by case basis.
