Come hack at Georgetown University (virtually)! 36 hours to learn, collaborate, code, and innovate with fellow hackers.
Hey Hackers! Welcome to the 6th iteration of Hoya Hacks, hosted at Georgetown University (and over the internet!). Please sign up through our registration form - NOT just on Devpost! Due to high demand, all applicants after 12/15/2020 will receive swag boxes on a first-come, first serve basis.
This year, Hoya Hacks will be completely virtual. This means that all students - starting from high school - are welcome to participate! We're preparing our schedule & events to accommodate different time zones, and your merch will be mailed prior to the hackathon.
