Hackathons are for designing, creating, and building awesome projects. HackED is the premiere annual 24-hour hackathon from the Computer Engineering Club of the University of Alberta.
This event is for hackers who choose to learn because they can, and build because they love it. Bring your creativity and create solutions to the problems that you deem important and that you want to work towards. Bring your team (up to five) and work together to overcome challenges, whether that’s in software, hardware, design or strategy. HackED is about working together and applying yourself, your skills and your creativity.
To help your journey, we take care of the details. HackED 2018 features more food, more space, more prizes and more swag. We provide you with three meals and a ton of snacks to power you through your hack. We’re expanding into the eighth floor of Donadeo ICE to give your team more room to think and collaborate. We’re spending over $1k on prizes, split between winning at the end, trivia throughout the night and some surprises too. And this year, we’re releasing custom HackED T-shirts for the first time in HackED history.
HackED 2018 also welcomes back our friends MLH from last year. Follow their Code of Conduct and enjoy their A-list stickers, free AWS credits, free APIs and free domains. Our friends from StartUp Edmonton are still here as well. Meet members of the community at the event that help us by volunteering and mentoring, make use of their student resources after the hackathon too. If you’d like to join us as a volunteer or mentor reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d be happy to bring you on to the team.
Join us over the weekend of January 27 to hack your way to something new, whether you’re learning to code for the first time or flexing your hacking muscle trying to build the next big thing. Bring on the challenge, bring your ideas to life.
