A hackathon is a coding event where participants (hackers) spend 24 hours working in teams of 1-4 people to build and code projects (hacks). Bring your ideas and we'll give you everything you need to bring it to life.
You should bring your student ID and anything you’d need for a productive, healthy, and fun weekend: laptop, phone, chargers, deodorant (!), change of clothes, etc. Don't worry about food and drinks, we've got you covered there.
We'll be sending a number of buses to nearby cities to get you to and from McHacks. We'll also have travel reimbursements available on a case-by-case basis.
Not a problem! We'll have team-forming activities to help you find teammates and brainstorm ideas. There'll also be workshops to learn technologies that could spark an idea to hack on.
Students at high school, CEGEP, and undergraduate levels are welcome to apply to McHacks! If you're under 18, we'll need a parental consent form.
Absolutely nothing! Admission is free, and includes food and drinks, snacks, workshops, (lots of) swag, and an epic weekend!
With beginner-friendly workshops, mentors around the clock, and friendly hackers around you, McHacks is the perfect place to push your first line of code! We'll have everything to help you build something you're proud of!
