Whatever you can dream up! A hackathon; A makeathon; an inventathon - whatever your take on it, this is about using your passion to learn and create something new.
If you are a current student, or if you have graduated in the last 12 months, you are eligible. If you are a high-school student and want to attend, great! Contact us below.
You don't need anything except your brain and passion. Everyone of all fields of study and levels of experience is welcome. You don't have to be an engineer or a programmer or designer to belong here. Additionally, we will have multiple workshops, crash-courses and mentors to kick-start and guide you to where you want to be.
Either is fine; you can go solo or be in a team of up to four people. Note: Competing alone does not mean you get four times the prizes, sorry :(
Nothing! We will provide everything - food, sleeping space, power, internet, snow...
Yes, yes, and yes. This event is about learning and fun, but we've partnered with MLH and our sponsors to bring some awesome prizes to WWH, including some surprises.
Not a problem! Many people don't have plans down when they arrive. There will be time and space to get together with students from other schools and get some ideas flowing. Meeting new people, being exposed to new ideas, and learning new things is one of the best things about coming, and many people also often end up creating great things, making friends, or even starting companies.
Bring whatever you need, but keep it light. This probably means a laptop, a change of clothes and other basics, and whatever you plan on using for your project. Make sure you bring a student id (and a photo id if your student id does not have a photo). We've partnered with MLH and MTU to have some hardware for you to check-out and use for the duration of the event - check back later for a full list.
No, you will not be cold (it doesn't get that cold here); if anything you'll be quite toasty inside. Do dress appropriately though (mittens!), especially bearing in mind that you might want to do something happening outside, where while not overly cold, it will be a winter wonderland with MTU's 300+ inch-per-year snowfall and plentiful ice sculptures from to the Winter carnival.
There is none! Registering as soon as possible will increase the chances of you recieving a shirt and other swag though.
You must abide by the Major League Hacking Code of Conduct. You don't necessarily have to start your project from scratch, but you can't submit anything you did before the start of the event. All work must be done at the event.
