HackYSU is a hack-a-thon/make-a-thon, an event where students of all majors and experience levels come together to create something - normally a creative technology project like an app or website - over the course of a weekend.
HackYSU 2022 will be held at Youngstown State University in the DeBartolo Stadium Club on .
Students will have 36 hours to create anything they want – software, hardware, a business plan, art, a design, anything – in the pursuit of experience, fun, knowledge, and prizes. Projects will be exhibited in a showcase Sunday around noon.
Nope! Not only is HackYSU free, but you'll recieve some complimentary food and swag too.
Use the Registration link at the top of the site!
If you are under 18 or a high school student please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the event to be considered.
Yep! There will be cash prizes for the best projects, and potentially
other prizes for certain categories thanks to our amazing sponsors.
But really, it's not about winning as much as
it's about learning, creating, and networking.
Did we mention some of our sponsors are looking for interns?
Nope! Not only is HackYSU not a programming-only event (though
there will be a lot of it), it is an educational experience. No
matter what your experience is, you are welcome here. Everyone is
invited to expand their skill set and make something!
We'll have mentors around helping students with their hacks, hardware like Raspberry Pis to borrow and hack on, and a team building session where you can meet some other attendees who you can work with for the weekend!
Hackers must abide by
Major League Hacking's code of conduct and YSU's Code of Conduct.
Also, teams must consist of 5 or less hackers, and all projects must be created at the hackathon to qualify for prizes. Feel free to plan a bit at home, but it wouldn't be fair if you have a head start!
Ideally, you'll have a computer and some hygiene basics, but if you don't have access to a personal computer, let us know! We will have Raspberry Pis available for you to borrow for the duration of the event, and we can look into getting monitors, keyboards, etc.
Email us at email@example.com and we'll take care of you.
