Students at the 2017 CornHacks hackathon.

CSE-SAB is hosting a hackathon event, CornHacks, on January 19-20 at 10 a.m. in Avery 15. The event is free.

This is a great opportunity to build software, hardware, apps, etc. with a team (of up to 4 fellow students). There will be companies there to help your teams and network with you for internships.

CSE-SAB will be giving away swag and (over $1500 worth of) prizes. Food will be provided.

Students are invited to work on any computing project they like, so new ideas and improvements to existing projects are welcome. No experience is necessary to participate.

Judges will be professors, grad students, and industry representatives. There will also be workshops hosted by students or industry reps (topics on how to build good projects, etc).

The event will start at 10 a.m. Saturday and go through the whole day. Students may stay over night or return home. The event will end with a project showcase at 10 a.m. on Sunday.

Projects will be evaluated by judges at the showcase, and participants will know the results and be able to leave by 1:00 p.m. Sunday.
