What is HackYSU?

HackYSU is a hackathon, 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 - awesome in a weekend.

Where and when is HackYSU?

HackYSU 2022 will be held at Youngstown State University in Spring 2022.

What do people do at hackathons?

Students will have 24 hours to create anything they want – software, hardware, a business plan, art, a design, anything – in the pursuit of knowledge, glory, and prizes. Hacks will be exhibited science fair style in a showcase at the end of the weekend.

Does it cost anything to participate?

Nope! Not only is HackYSU free, but you'll probably recieve some awesome free swag too.

How do I register?

Use the Registration link at the top of the site.

If you are under 18 or a high school student please email us at contact@ysucomputerclub.com prior to the event to be considered.

Are there prizes?

Yep! Besides first through third place prizes for the best overall hacks we'll also have category prizes thanks to our awesome 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?

Do I need to be able to code?

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, you are welcome here. Everyone is invited to expand their skill set and make something awesome.

We'll have mentors around helping students with their hacks, hardware like Vives to borrow and hack on, and a team building session where you can meet some awesome people who'll either help get you on your feet or compliment your abilities.

What are the rules?

Hackers must abide by Major League Hacking's code of conduct and YSU's Code of Conduct 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!

What do I need to participate?

You will need a computer, an internet connection, a Discord Account and everything you need to be a decent human being for 24 hours.
