FAQ

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is where you transform your crazy ideas into real stuff. Hundreds of hackers from across California and other parts of the U.S. form teams around an idea and collaboratively create a solution from scratch. These ideas turn into websites, mobile apps, hardware, and more!

Come make the most incredible things you can imagine alongside fellow creators. You take care of building and we'll take care of you.

We will be following MLH's Code Of Conduct.

Who can attend?

HackDavis is open to all majors! As long as you're prepared to learn, brainstorm, and build cool things, we welcome you to join. We encourage participants to form teams of up to 4 people.

We will be holding workshops throughout the year for students to immerse themselves into the world of hackathons and technology. These workshops will be held by industry professionals and members of our team, who will teach new and upcoming tools that assist with web development, mobile development, and more.

How can I help?

We need mentors and volunteers to ensure a great hacker experience at our event! Fill out our mentor application or volunteer application so that we know you're willing to help!

Why social good?

We want people to build projects with a meaningful impact and hope to foster a community dedicated to social change.

We find that most hackathons often don’t result with projects as practical solutions to specific societal problems and we’re looking to change that.

What can I build?

You can build whatever your heart desires, whether its a web app, mobile app, hardware hack, or an open source tool. Any project under one of the three tracks (health/wellness, education, and environment) is recommended.

Our main focus is to bring you a learning experience where you can have fun, ask questions, and experiment with technology.

What if I don’t have a team or idea?

Don't worry! We're hosting two mixers before HackDavis, so please check out our Facebook page for more announcements about those. We’ll also have a final mixer right after hacking starts during HackDavis, so we'll make sure you're equipped and ready to go!

How much does it cost?

HackDavis is free for all admitted participants. Don’t sweat it! We will provide your WiFi, meals, caffeine, swag, and workspace for the entire weekend.

As an NPO, why should I attend?

Because we emphasize social good in our hackathon, each year we partner with three non-profit organizations to raise awareness for issues on which they focus. Representatives come to our hackathon to help envision projects that relate to their non-profit’s goals.
