But what about the blizzard?

The organizers believe that we can wish it away with enough mental fortitude. If we deny the possibility of a snowy calamity, we won't need to deal with it. :)

In all seriousness, our venue defers to MIT's decision for weather-related closures. Or if there's a State of Emergency. We'll let you know if the hackathon is cancelled and rescheduled.

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.
