HackBeanpot 2022

Coming to a galaxy near you in February

Applications are now open
Blast off!

Explore the stars with us at
our 10th annual event!

HackBeanpot 2022 is gonna be out of this world! Join our community of astronaut trainees* for a weekend of exploration, collaboration, and fun! (Oh, and did we mention free food and swag?)

Hackers can expect to put their resourcefulness to the test, while sharing stories, and learning new skills from peers. So whether you're a seasoned hackathon-goer, an ‘I-have-never-written-a-line-of-code’ beginner, or someone in-between, we’re excited for you to embark on this adventure with us!

*no actual astronaut training or experience necessary

HackBeanpot is about...


Discover new ideas and technologies (and maybe even galaxies?!) with the help of experienced mentors.


Connect with fellow students and our partners in the Boston tech community. Build connections that will last for lightyears!


Expand beyond your horizons and grow your current skill set in a safe and supportive environment.

Covid Precautions

Safety First!

For the foreseeable future, HackBeanpot is planning to be an in-person event with hybrid elements only in areas where they would enhance our event. This means that we plan for hackers and staff to be 100% in-person and the majority of our mentors, speakers, and sponsors to be in-person (outside of overnight mentors or really cool speakers). We are closely monitoring event guidelines from the CDC and Boston-area schools in order to transition to a virtual event if that becomes the necessary method to host an event that keeps the safety of everyone in mind, but we'd really like to see everyone in-person again!

For our in-person event, our team is hard at work incorporating the appropriate COVID protocols to maintain safety. Some examples of this include maintaining hygiene, frequently sanitizing the event space, and providing education to hackers on the best way to maintain COVID safety throughout the event as per the latest CDC guidelines. We hope that all astronauts feel comfortable with our COVID safety plan, but we'd love to hear from you otherwise!
