About Us

Cypher VII is the College of William & Mary's annual hackathon. We'll come together for a weekend and learn new stuff, have fun, and create cool projects. Come on down to learn from our workshops, get to know tech companies both local and nationwide, or compete for prizes! We pride ourselves on being accessible and welcoming to everyone, regardless of your skill or experience. So try something new! It's Cypher!

Hybrid Hackathon

This year, Cypher VII is is going hybrid! William & Mary students will be able to join us in-person at the Swem Library. Not eligible? Fear not! We will be hosting all of our events and workshops virtually as well. We will be using Slack as our main platform for the event and Zoom for the opening and closing ceremonies, tech talks, and showing off hacks at the end of the hackathon. Many events will be recorded and available on the Cypher YouTube channel afterwards. You can find some of last year's videos there too!

For more about our COVID-19 policy, see here.
