Event Date: October 02, 2015
Hosting Institution: UC - San Diego
Summary: A hackathon is an event, typically lasting several days, in which a large number of people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming. Everyone from all walks of life are welcome at hackathons, and we are strong supporters of happy, safe, accepting working environments. If you would like to see more about the standards we uphold to create this type of environments, check out MLH's Code of Conduct. Teams can be as large as you’d like, but only groups of up to 4 people are eligible for all prizes and team-based travel reimbursement. No problem! We'll be having a mixer right before the hack so that you can team up. No one has to hack alone. The event is free to college students who make it through our registration process. Food, electricity, internet, and all other necessary equipment for your development process will be provided.
