A hackathon is a technology-focused event where individuals can come together and work on new projects in a short period of time. During this period you can build anything you want, an app, a robot, or a website, the only limitation is your imagination! CodeQuantum will be a 24-hour hackathon that is filled with mini-events, workshops, and hacking!
Make Friends: We have a few events lined up for those hackers who want a break and want to have fun! Our events will allow you to meet new friends, get creative, and make memories you won’t forget! Learn New Skills: WeCanCode aims to provide not only a safe hacking space for participants but also to provide a learning experience for everyone! We plan to accomplish this by providing fun and informative games! Expand Your Network!: We have a few sponsors that you are able to network with!WeCanCode will also have mentors that will be available to work closely with hackers throughout the event. They will be able to assist with questions and problem-solve with hackers on their projects! Earn Prizes: What is a hackathon without prizes?! We have some awesome prizes for the winners.
No, you don’t! You do not need any background in technology to join, everyone is welcome! Students of all skill levels are encouraged to attend, we are very beginner friendly and are prepared to guide you through this years event!
It is FREE for all participants thanks to our amazing sponsors!
There will be about 3 to 4 students per team. You can also work alone, but we encourage every hacker to collaborate with the other great minds at WCC Hackathon.
Of course! Hackathons are a great place to learn new technologies, meet new people, network with sponsors, add something to your resume, and hack something cool 😉
No. In the interest of fairness, hackers should not be working on their projects before the hackathon begins and we do not allow participants to work on pre-existing projects. However, you can familiarize yourself with all the tools and technologies you intend to use beforehand.
Please bring a valid ID (or any student ID if in high school), a computer (preferably a laptop), chargers, and any hardware you will use for your hack. No firearms, weapons, alcohol, or illegal drugs are allowed on campus. BONUS: Sleeping gear, can get creative like a tent, air mattress and pillows!!!
