SLO Hacks Lite is a 24- hour online beginner-oriented hackathon for Cal Poly students. It's open to all majors and all skill levels!

About this Event

SLO Hacks Lite is a 24-hour online introductory hackathon hosted by SLO Hacks.

Our event is open to all majors and all skill levels. Whether you're a first-time coder or this is your first hackathon, this event is for you!

Over the course of the event, you'll learn why hackathons are gaining traction with people of all majors, build something awesome, and come out with a new skill or two.

Don't know what a hackathon is? It's a 12-36 hour event where entrepreneurs, developers, and designers like you come together to build anything you want - mobile games, website designs, fintech startups - you name it. We also provide many networking and resume building opportunities!

Hackathons aren't just for advanced coders. Everyone has the opportunity to learn and build their craziest ideas. We at SLO Hacks are hosting a 24-hour, 200-student event to prepare you for our 36-hour, 300-student Spring event, in addition to all the other hackathons in the world!

None of our events would be possible without our dedicated student and professor mentors. If you have any technical skills such as UI/UX Design, Web Development, Hardware, Graphic Design, or Data Science, we’re looking for individuals like you! Sign up to be a mentor HERE.

We're excited to have a blast with you!
