A free, non-profit hackathon that strives to create a place for students to have fun and learn to code.
January 18-19, 2020
Nowadays, hackathons are rampant with negative influences. Whether it be cheating, bad judging, horrible mentors, or an uncomfortable venue, it's hard to perform your best at hackathons lately. That's where we come in. After months of attending various hackathons and surveying the attendees, we're ready to present a hackathon that allows the competitve coder in you to roam free.
DVHacks is bustling with organizers and mentors experienced in the computer sciences, whether it be machine learning or web development. Our team is there around the clock to make sure that the Pro Hackers are never lost in their code.
Unlike other hackathons, here at DVHacks, we have a group of volunteers at the ready checking people's code every 2 hours on GitHub, with participants required to submit commits to their code on a per hour basis. Despite its inconveniences, this way we can assure that everybody has a fair shot.
From the coding range to the food options, we've gone out of our way to ensure that every Pro Hacker has the best experience possible, and that all starts with a wide variety of options to choose from. Here at DVHacks, you can, hopefully, find what you like in the food, and make what you want in the code.
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, we're able to set every Pro Hacker up with some great resources to make their code that much better, and their experience that much smoother. In addition to that, we will be providing some miscellaneous resources for Pro Hackers to accelerate their development. More details will be released as organization progresses.
Although there's a lot of competition in the technology industry, we're all colleagues at heart, with the same passion for computer science burning inside of us. DVHacks has many events to bring our community closer together, from the ping pong and Tetris tournament, to a friendly game of capture the flag.
Although it won't be confirmed until the day of the actual hackathon, we have some really great prizes planned out for all of the Pro Hackers. We'll have some swag for everyone, but for those of you who go above and beyond, and really blow our minds? We've got something special in store for you.
