We’ve come a long way since our first hackathon. After four iterations of HackDartmouth and our third HackDay last fall, we’re more excited than ever to innovate this year!
This spring, HackDartmouth V 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 6-7, 2019!
- All hacks must be built at Dartmouth by registered and accepted participants.
- Teams may include up to four members.
- A valid submission is a hack produced at HackDartmouth from start to finish.
