Hey Hackers 👋 We the team at Hoya Hacks have put together the most unique hackathon for this upcoming seasons. Our focus this year is all about hacking for social impact. Our tracks range from Equity and Access and Gender Equality to Health and Education. We are so excited to be hosting the fourth iteration of Hoya Hacks!
We hope to see you there! Hoya Haxa!
Hoya Hacks is a 36-hour event at Georgetown University that brings together students interested in building something cool. We provide the resources for you to succeed, no matter your skill level!
Students of all skill levels are encouraged to attend, even if you've never written a line of code. We're prepared to teach you everything you need to learn right here while also supporting the most experienced hackers.
No need to fear! We're so excited to share this experience with you. There will be tons of workshops to get you started, and our goal is for you to learn something new and make some new friends.
Yes, absolutely! This is all thanks to our amazing sponsors. We will provide food, prizes, swag, and awesome fun activities. Just be sure to bring your own hacking gear!
We will have team-forming events, in addition to other activities where you can mingle with other hackers! Feel free to join any team that has less than 4 people.
We want all hackers to feel welcome and comfortable during their time here! We are using the MLH code of conduct. You can read it here.
Hoya Hacks is open to any undergraduate at any college. Non-Georgetown students must be at least 18 years old. Unfortunately, at this time high school students (who are under 18) can't attend.
Bring your student ID for entrance, and your laptop and charger for hacking. We also recommend toiletries for hygiene, a change of clothes, and a sleeping bag, along with any other items you prefer to travel with!
There will be travel reimbursements awarded to students outside of the DC-Maryland-Virginia area. We anticipate awarding students with up to $40 for travel.
