About US

We are hosting our second hackathon ever!
Check out what we are all about.


This will be our second collegiate hackathon at the College of William & Mary. A hackathon is an opportunity for innovative students to come together and bring their software ideas to life.

Dream Big

The perfect opportunity for hackers, from inexperienced to advanced, to think outside the box, push the boundaries of their expectations, and leave knowing they learned and achieved something awesome.

Show Your Passion

We love computers and the things people create with them. And when you spend your weekend slaying your keyboard and crafting the greatest innovation in computing the world has ever seen, people tend to take notice.


Leave the sustenance to us. We want you to take advantage of every second you can score some sweet prizes. Are you a hacking novice? We'll be hosting introductory tutorials to get you up to speed on the basics of building an app.



We'll take care of you, so that you can focus on your hack.
