The Coding Your Future Hackathon will be held on February 24-26, 2023, and is a live event where “hackers” (participants) design, develop, and pitch a software or hardware project built from scratch over the course of 36 hours.

Although individual submissions are allowed, we highly encourage you to join as a team of up to 4. If you can't find a team, don't worry! You will have a chance to form or join a team of up to 4 people before or during the hackathon. Since, we’re going virtual this year you can team up with hackers regardless of their school, country, or timezone; great opportunity to expand your network!

Anyone can join! If you're a novice at coding, don't worry we've got helpful resources and mentorship for you over the course of this hackathon. You'll leave this hackathon as a proficient coder. We will help you bit by bit to help you get there. Stick around and enjoy what we've got in store for you!

The icing on the cake is that all of this is for free! No registration costs or any of that jazz.

Do it for the cookies ;)
