What is HackTheU?
HackTheU is Utah's largest and most popular hackathon! Work with the greatest and brightest students from around the world to make your imagination come to life with the power of technology, this year from the comfort of your own home. The next big thing comes from you, and we're offering over $10,000 in prizes for you to build it here!
How do I participate in a virtual hackathon?
We're so excited to have you!
First, register for our hackathon; this is how we're keeping track of submissions and attendees. We'll be shipping you swag and updating you via email as the hackathon approaches!
Next, think of a project idea and form a team! This year, we'll be judging projects on our "Out of this World" best-of-show track, as well as a couple of sponsorship related competitions and prizes. Stay tuned for more information on the exact tracks we will be hosting! If you're looking for inspiration, try starting with this gist!
