While it may be tempting to hack all night, we will also have dedicated on-site sleep spaces for those of you trying to get some shut-eye.
Each team consists of a maximum of five members. You can create a team and designate teammates during registration, or you can register as an individual. Admission decisions will be all-or-none, so either all of your teammates will receive admission if selected or none of your teammates will receive admission. You can even form a team during early hours of the Hackathon.
Not a problem! The entire Major League Hacking team knew very little when they each attended their very first hackathon. It’s entirely irrelevant what your experience is going into a hackathon, it’s more about your interest in technology. Every MLH Member Event is passionate about making their hackathons very welcoming and beginner-friendly. If you’re wanting to learn how to code outside of a hackathon, there’s a fantastic blog post that you should read. After, you should check out the following: Treehouse, Codecademy and the Major League Hacking blog to get started.
If you live in the Salt Lake area, you can travel using the UTA Red Line and get off at the Stadium. You can also take the buses that comes to University of Utah. If you from out-of-state, you are responsible for arranging your travel accommodations.
As long as you are a student at any college in the world and are 18 or older, you are invited to apply to HackTheU!
A hackathon is best described as an “invention marathon”. Anyone who has an interest in technology attends a hackathon to learn, build & share their creations over the course of a weekend in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. You don’t have to be a programmer and you certainly don’t have to be majoring in Computer Science.
Unfortunately, we cannot offer any other travel reimbursements at this time. We still hope that you will still consider joining us in October!
Absolutely! Your meals for the weekend will be free and there’ll be plenty of snacks and drinks to keep you energized. If you’ve got specific dietary requirements, you should let us know and we’ll be more than happy to make arrangements.
Yes. Anyone who has graduated within the last 12 months is still eligible to attend an MLH Member Event hackathon. After that, there’s plenty of non-student hackathons that exist for you to consider attending.
