What Do You Want To Make?

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.

A Code-Friendly Environment

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 DV Hackers are never lost in their code.

Secure Submissions

Here at DV Hacks, we have a group of volunteers making sure that no cheating takes place. We will be making sure that your final submissions aren’t completely copied off by another team or copied by existing GitHub projects. DV Hacks is all about making sure all our competitors have a fair shot at our wonderful prizes!


From the coding range to the food options, we've gone out of our way to ensure that every DV 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.

Hacker Resources

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, we're able to set every DV 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 miscellaneous resources for DV Hackers to accelerate their development.

Bringing the Coding Community Closer Together

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 ping pong to the classic game of cup stacking. If you win, there might be a prize! ;)

Great Prizes!

We have some incredible prizes for our DV Hackers. We'll have swag for everyone, and for those that are able to win it all, we got prizes like PS4 Bundles and Apple Watches! Yeah, you read that right.
