A hackathon is an event in which a large number of people meet together for collaborative programming. This hackathon is created to get more students involved in computer science and sharing ideas with other people.
Nothing! It’s true, this hackathon is made possible by the helps of generous sponsors and mentors that all believe that education should be free for everyone. We are working tirelessly to secure these funds so we can ensure the best hackathon as possible.
Please signup using the website’s registration section. Friends are only allowed if they are part of the El Dorado School District. Due to safety concerns we will not be allowed to accept anyone outside of the district, but don’t worry, you’re in safe hands.
The event will be 12 hours long! We're working on the exact times of the event so check back regularly and we'll let you know when the hackathon officially starts.
No, all meals are being provided by the hackathon preparation team along with plenty of snacks for everyone. There will also be vegetarian meal options, please include this information when you signup on the registration page of the website.
The event is hosted 1900 Prarie City Drive. It is Intel's campus in Folsom. Please read the locations section for more information.
Over the course of the hackathon, there will be presentations and seminars designed to teach new students programming techniques, practices, and business tools. If you are more advanced, there are other courses being taught as well.
The event is planned to take place on April 28th, we are working with school districts to find a date that best works with all students so if the event changes we'll let you know. We can only accomodate up to 100 students at this event so if you cannot come please let us know so we can offer your spot to another student. If you've signed up we'll email you if there's a new spot available or we have made any changes.
