Check out 2021.hack.gt for more information about the event and our tracks. You must apply at registration.2021.hack.gt and be accepted to attend the event. 

What is HackGT?

HackGT is a free 36-hour hackathon where students from across the world come together for a weekend to create innovative projects that show off their creativity and passion for development. You may choose any platform, programming language, or format to show how you build solutions.

Participating in this event will widen your professional network and allow you to further develop your creativity! With tech talks and workshops, you will have the opportunity to talk to and learn from professionals in various industries. We encourage everyone to be a part of the hacker community at HackGT 8 regardless of location, major, or prior hacking experience.

About HackGT 8

Discover your craft this fall at HackGT 8 from October 22nd - 24th! We’re back with the eighth iteration of our flagship event where we bring you to the HackGT marketplace to support you as you hone your hacking skills and explore a weekend filled with community and compassion.

This year, we’ll be welcoming over 1,500 talented hackers from around the world to win amazing prizes, meet new people, and experience a weekend filled with quests and adventure!

Our first-ever hybrid event will redefine the hacker experience by bringing you the best of both worlds. Not only will we be supplying workshops, mentors, and tech talks, but we will also have built-in, cross-platform interactions to bridge the virtual and in-person experiences.
