Carleton University's CUHacking is the largest hackathon in Ottawa. The hackathon takes place over 24 hours, non-stop! Students can compete against each other and themselves to take their projects from concept to reality.
By sponsoring CUHacking, your organization has the opportunity to advertise, run challenges and workshops, network with passionate students, and discover new project ideas. Contact us if your company is interested in sponsoring CUHacking!
Think of it as a marathon of building and learning new things. Students from different universities and backgrounds get to work together to turn an idea into a reality. Be it an app, website, or hardware hack, the sky's the limit! There’s also free swag and prizes to be won. Anyone who has an interest in technology is welcome to attend this 24 hour event. The goal is to learn something new!
Definitely! Whether it’s ideas, coding, design, or a really smooth pitch, everyone can bring something to the table. This is a great opportunity to learn something new, meet like minded people, and just have a fantastic time.
The event is entirely free! (And we’ll even take care of the food)
Any university or college student can apply, regardless of program.
To be fair, everyone starts their hack only once the event officially begins. We recommend setting up your environment (install Xcode, Android Studio, Git, etc) but don’t start hacking until the event!
Yes! A hardware lab provided by MLH will be available with Arduinos, Oculus Rifts, Amazon Echoes, and more! A list will be released with more details really soon.
Your laptop, charger, a piece of ID and your creativity! We also recommend bringing a sleeping bag and basic toiletries. Leave the rest to us! Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided along with snacks and drinks.
Don’t worry if you don’t have a team prior to the event, there will be plenty of opportunities to meet other hackers and form teams when you get here!
Teams are made of up to 4 people. Take this opportunity to make new friends and work with people from different schools and skill levels.
Sorry, we are not currently offering travel reimbursement but we will let you know if this changes!
