Carleton University's cuHacking longest running student-led MLH 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!
In order to make the event 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!
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.
We definitely want to; we are looking into it but we make no promises.
Yes. We want to ensure that everyone feels comfortable and safe while attending cuHacking. You can find the code of conduct here.
