vhHacks is all about learning! If you haven't attended a hackathon before, pick a path below to make your first stride!
Design the user interface for your hack.
Write the code that makes your hack work.
Create a unique game in a short period of time.
Use hardware to solve modern problems.
A hackathon is an invention marathon. Students come together in teams to build cool software and hardware projects over 24 hours.
vhHacks is open to all high school students of all skill levels. If you're older (post-secondary or above) and have experience in computer science, you can apply to be a mentor.
Nothing! vhHacks is completely free of charge at the event. However, if you are booking a stay near the event, or taking public transport, those will cost money.
Yes. Food and snacks are provided throughout the event, even overnight! (We know you night owls get the munchies) There are also restaurants around the venue to buy food and snacks, and you can always bring your own!
Hackathons are very beginner friendly. Whether you've already been in many hackathons before, you're pursuing computer science, or an absolute beginner, you're the right fit for vhHacks. Artists, musicians, athletes, gamers, everyone!
Teams are usually 2-4 people in size. Teams bigger than 4 will be split up into smaller ones, since larger teams aren't usually the best solution for a 24 hour event.
No worry! A lot of other hackers are in the same position. vhHacks staff will help you find other teammates and provide you with opportunities to find others!
Since vhHacks is a 24 hour event, prepare to stay overnight! Food is provided at the event, so don't worry about that. More information will come sooner to the event.
