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.
We are looking to host the event on April 21st. The date may change but we will keep you updated! The hackathon will be 12 hours long! If you sign up on the registration page we'll be sure to send updates right to your email.
Nothing! It’s true, this hackathon is made possible by all of our generous sponsors and mentors that all believe that education should be free for everyone. Everyday, we work tirelessly to secure these funds so we can ensure we create the best hackathon possible.
Please sign up using the website’s registration page. Friends are only allowed if they are a part of the El Dorado School District. Due to safety concerns we will not be allowed to accept anyone outside of the district, and will be checking school ID's at the entrance. Don't worry about a thing, you're in safe hands!
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 sign up on the registration page of the website.
The event is hosted at 1900 Prarie City Drive. It is Intel's campus in Folsom. Please read the directions 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 standard business tools. Industry professionals from Intel will teach VR, there will be Web Designers, Robotics experts, and even more! Beginner or advanced, there are plenty of opportunities to learn for everyone.
There are a bunch of reasons! You get to work with other students who are interested in computer science, and meet with professionals. Plus businesses are always looking for talented programmers.
