Starting on Friday May 23rd, students from UCI and various other schools in Southern California will have 36 hours to use various technologies to demonstrate why we, the students, are the most important people of this generation when it comes to being innovative and to bringing change.
Company sponsors will be on-site for you to check out their products, and hand out free swag. We'll have tech talks, API demos, and various other opportunities for you to see and experience the latest in cutting-edge technology.
This is an opportunity you can't miss. Reserve your spot today!

What is a Hackathon?
A hackathon is a place where the only thing limiting what you build is your own creativity - we'll provide the rest. It's a student competition that will be judged by professionals and the new career fair of today. Stay up for 36 hours with the smartest people you'll ever meet, building the coolest things you have created and chugging more Red Bull than you ever thought possible.
Who can come?
Any undergraduate or graduate students. We also admit high school students on a case-by-case basis.
Admission is free!
What should I create?
You can build whatever you can dream of, whether that be a website with an amazing feature, a phone app, or a cool rad piece of hardware. (Soldering is NOT allowed!) Our only rule is that all code must be written during the hackathon itself. Feel free to use open source libraries and APIs; companies attending may provide theiro wn as well. We will judge the hacks based on your creativity, technical difficulty, presentation, and wow factor. Impress us!
How do I register?
Register right here! And be sure to add yourself to the mailing list at hackuci.com, if you have not already.
What should I bring?
Yourself, an idea, photo ID, your hacking setup, clothes, toiletries, and optionally a sleeping bag.
Do I sign up as a team or individual?
You can sign up as a team of up to four members or as an individual. If you're an individual looking for team members, you will find tons of other smart people at the event to form a team. We'll be sure to place you in a team before the event starts, so fear not!
How large are the teams?
Teams should be no larger than 4. We encourage you to find a team, as hacking alone is no fun! Ask and we'll help you find a team to join.
Can we work on an existing project?
All projects must be started at the event itself. Our judges from the industry will know what is possible within 36 hours.
How are hacks presented?
On Sunday at 12:00pm, all hackers will be able to demo their hacks to sponsors and their fellow hackers in an expo event. Fifteen hacks will be selected based on submitted videos, and these teams/individuals will present their hacks to everyone for two minutes.
I live far away. How do I get to the event?
More details to come.
When does the event end?
The final awards and closing ceremony will end at 4pm on Sunday, May 25th.
