Our hackathon is an awesome weekend long event where people come together to design something new and bring it to life! There will be lots of learning and workshops, fun games, speakers, and prizes for you to enjoy throughout the weekend!
DivHacks welcomes anyone who is currently a college student, both undergraduate or graduate! We are trying to provide a safe and empowering space for students who identify as part of an underrepresented group in tech, but we welcome everyone who feels they would benefit from this type of space! If you feel this hackathon in not right for you as a hacker, but you would like to participate in some other way as a mentor, workshop leader, or volunteer, please contact us!
Not at all! You do not have to have any experience or even be a CS major. DivHacks welcomes people of all skill levels, and that includes those who are interested in learning. Throughout the hackathon, there will be workshops aimed towards beginners in different areas including workshops for those with no prior programming experience at all. This year, we especially hope to focus on creating tracks that even people without any experience can leave the event with a project!
We are working on making the hackathons as interactive as possible this year! We will be sending updates on what this will look like exactly!
You do not need to have a team or idea in mind before signing up for DivHacks! If you have a team already, that's great! Please indicate that on your form. Teams can be a maximum of 4 people. This year to support virtual team building, we will also provide the option to have us pair you up with a team before the event so you can come to the event already knowing you have a group of people to work with. We will also host a team building event if you prefer to find people independently!
We will be shipping some fun secret 2D swag to all participants with a US mailing address who submit a project! We cannot currently guarantee 3D swag or food, but are working with sponsors to get these hackathon classics to you!
No, feel free to come to attend workshops, hang out with other hackers, and listen to speakers. You will need to submit a project to receive swag, however!
