Description

Dig a little deeper this January at our fourth and best-yet iteration of nwHacks ⛏️

This is the largest hackathon in western Canada and the Pacific Northwest, but more importantly, a thrilling 24-hr adventure through the world of cutting-edge tech. Journey with us along the frontiers of innovation while you work in a team to create a tech project from scratch, and get ready to push yourself beyond your limits and uncover more late-night motivation than you thought possible. Along the way, you’ll befriend industry pros from companies like Google and Microsoft, fuel up on waffles, and bond with the 600 other hackers who share your passion and drive. Word of advice: go easy on the gear — you’ll want to leave lots of room for the swag you collect this weekend.

We welcome hackathon veterans and first-timers alike. Come as you are (that is, a student or recent grad with a laptop) and leave with so much more. Because whether it’s the experience you gain or the friends you make, rest assured that at nwHacks 2018 you’ll be finding more gems than ever before 💎
