A Boston hackathon for students, hackers, makers, beginners,

The best part of winter in Boston, guaranteed.

To the Waitlist!

We had a blast at HackBeanpot 2015!

Thanks Alex Chan for shooting/editing.

HackBeanpot 2015 was hosted at CIC Cambridge from February 6th to 8th. We ate lots of Girl Scout Cookies, made new friends (and Pokemon!), ran around with tiaras, and hacked out a bunch of ideas. We learned so much, and oh, did so many of us unexpectedly pivot at the last minute.

Check out the project directory to see what our hackers worked on! Event photos can be found on Facebook.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is an event where people come together to work intensively on programming or hardware projects. Attending a hackathon is a great way to meet and work with new people, come up with exciting ideas, and learn interesting technologies.

When and where is this?

January 22-24th, at the C3 Space in the Cambridge Innovation Center.

I don't have a lot of programming experience. Is this event for me?

Yes! People with all levels of experience will be attending. If you get stuck, mentors will be working in the field to assist. We care much more about fostering an environment where you can have fun and learn, than making an environment that only attracts an elite group of hackers.
