One hundred students from all disciplines from the GTA are invited to come create, challenge, and solve a real-world issue this year at Sheridan College's second annual hackathon. Hackville 2020 will bring together innovators, technology enthusiasts, designers, and entrepreneurs in a creative and collaborative environment. Hackville is a student run event where over the duration of 18 hours students are immersed in tech culture and encouraged to exercise their imagination to create interesting and innovative hacks.
Hackville 2019 Recap
Why Should I Do A Hack?
Frequently asked questions
What is a Hackathon?
A hackathon is a sprint-like event where innovators and inventors, usually students, can come together to solve real-world challenges using technology. They can be as long as an weekend.
I don’t know any coding. Can I
Yes! As a beginner-friendly hackathon, we will set you up with the knowledge you need to start your first hackathon project, along with mentors.
How much does it cost?
Hackville is completely free for 100 students! We want to make our event as accessible as possible, regardless of financial ability or otherwise.
How do teams work?
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.
What can I build?
Anything! We encourage any and all forms of solutions: whether it’s a game, app, hardware, AR, or anything at all.
Can I start working on my hack
before the hackathon?
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.
Do I need to bring anything?
Laptop, pens, paper and any other tools you may use to solve problems. We will provide food, power and a safe work environment for all teams.
Is there a code of conduct?
Yes! More information coming soon.
My question isn’t here. Who
can I contact?
No worries, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be more than happy to answer your question!
Without volunteers and mentors, Hackville would never be possible! We are looking for people to volunteer or mentor at the upcoming Hackville 2020!
