UWB Hacks the Internet is the UWB ACM's 2019 hackathon. Join us on April 19th, 2019 for an all-day event to learn a lot and make something awesome.
We'll be providing breakfast, lunch, dinner, and most importantly, snacks.
A hackathon is a design sprint-like event in which computer programmers and others involved in software development, including graphic designers, interface designers, project managers, and others, often including domain experts, collaborate intensively on software projects.
This year's theme is Web Development. No prior experience is required, and we'll be hosting
workshops and panels where participants can learn everything they need to get started.
It's a large topic, with plenty of opportunities for ideas. We'll have an opportunity at the start of the
event to help your brainstorm for ideas.
We'll cover the following topics:
Of course, you are more than welcome to hack on unrelated project ideas during this event also. Please use this time to create something new, and not just your homework.
This event will start at 9:00 AM on April 19th in the North Creek Event Center on the University of Washington Bothell campus. Most of the event will take place in the Activities and Resource Center (ARC). The event will go until about 10:00 PM.
More details to come on the day of the event.
Admission is completely free, including breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.
This event is open to all students!
No problem! We'll be hosting introductory workshops and panels to help teach beginners everything they'll need to know to get started.
No, teams will be formed the morning of the event.
You may work individually, or in a group of up to five total people.
Please bring a laptop, chargers, and anything else you might need. This event is 13-hours long, but is not overnight.
