SEPTEMBER 25-27, 2015

You're standing at the edge of a remote jungle, machete in hand, adventure in your soul. About to begin a journey of a lifetime. You're anxious. On one hand, there's wayward failure. On the other, the opportunity to be a trailblazing hero, a modern Indiana Jones.

Take that first step. Make a difference. Discover the uncharted.



What is HackGT?

HackGT is the second iteration of Georgia Tech's official national hackathon. Over 1,000 hackers from across the nation will travel by bus and plane to represent their universities at the biggest event of its kind in the South. Grab up to 3 teammates and prepare to rock.

What will I eat?

In true Southern hospitable fashion, we'll be providing the best food you can eat, fresh and healthy.

Do you offer travel reimbursement?

We're offering up to $300 in travel reimbursements for eligible hackers. Indicate your needs in your application and we'll reach out personally to take care of you.

What should I bring?

Everything you need to be a healthy and hygienic human being for two nights. After you pack your laptops, phones, chargers, headphones, and other electronic gear, be sure to grab your toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, contact solution, towel, and whatever else you may need. Keep it minimal.

Am I allowed to use past projects?

Using past code is heavily discouraged - do you really want to ruin the fun? However, you're more than welcome to use open-source projects and libraries (e.g., Bootstrap) as well as existing platforms and services (like Twilio's API).

What's the cost of attending?

HackGT is absolutely, 100% free of charge. We'll cover all of your meals and associated costs for the entire weekend. Take advantage of this.
