Frequently Asked Questions

Do you guys actually hack?

No, that's not what we mean by "hack"! Hacking is a general term for finding creative solutions with code to solve problems we see around us.

Who is eligible to participate?

All high school students are welcome to attend. Bring your friends!

What should I bring?

Bring a laptop and a charger. Also, make sure to bring your own lunch, or money to buy food. There will be plenty of nearby restaurants and stores.

I'm new to coding. Can I still participate?

Yes! If you are a beginner, you can attend our workshops that we run throughout the event. They'll cover the basics of different tools you can use to build your hack.

How much will it cost?

Nothing at all! This event is completely free to attend.
