The Grand Carolina Hackathon

HackNC is a weekend for students of all skill levels to broaden their talents. Your challenge is to make an awesome project in just 24 hours. You will have access to hands-on demos and workshops from our sponsors as well as exciting talks about the awesome things happening right now with computer science. During your time here you can enjoy all the free food, clothes, stickers, water bottles, computer accessories, and other miscellanea that you have ever desired.

If this sounds too overwhelming, don’t worry. HackNC is not only for students who have been coding for 42 years and have had just as many internships; it also provides computer science amuse-bouche to help you find new things you may be interested in. Whether you are a beginner or grad student, on easy or hard mode, you are welcome to come and learn all the ints and outs of computer science. So what are you waiting for? Bring your curiosity and creativity and be ready to do something new at HackNC!
