A hackathon for beginning and experienced developers to write innovative code and develop interesting projects.
2015 was a great year for HackDartmouth. We had such a great time with all you hackers at our first two events that we just had to throw another one for hackers of all levels. Thus, we present to you: HackDartmouth’s HackDay!
This time, we're narrowing our focus to Dartmouth students combining experiential learning with friendly competition in a closer, more intimate environment. We will be offering student-run workshops the evening before the event. Come familiarize yourself with the latest tech and API’s or learn to code from the area’s greatest hackers.
The day of the event features twelve hours of coding, swag, and amazing prizes! So mark your calendars for April 16th, 2016 with workshops the evening before. Check out our website for more the schedule and more details!
