We had over 100 hackers last year from all backgrounds — you’re sure to meet like-minded students and form lifelong friendships.
With exciting challenges to inspire you, the possibilities are endless.
Last year, we gave away more than $10,000 in prizes — and we have lots to give away this year!
A hackathon is a sprint-like event where innovators and inventors, usually students, can come together to solve real-world challenges using technology.
Anything! We encourage any and all forms of solutions: whether it’s a game, app, hardware, AR, or anything at all.
No worries, please e-mail us at [email protected] and we will be more than happy to answer your question!
Yes! We require all hackers to abide by the the MLH code of conduct.

Hackville is completely free! We aim to make our event as accessible as possible, regardless of financial ability.
We are allowing team sizes of up to 4 people on a team. You can come with a team, though we highly encourage creating your team at the event! At the very beginning of the hackathon we will hold a team building session for anybody who does not have a team at that time.
Since our event is virtual, you'll have easy access to your laptop, pens, paper and any other tools you may need to hack. We will provide a safe, collaborative environment for all participants — and swag!
No, you will be disqualified if a submitted project was worked on prior to the hackathon weekend. All coding and design work must be done during the hackathon weekend.
