What is a Hackathon?

Good question! A Hackathon is an event where students come together to learn, build, and share their creations the course of the day. Hackathons are often paired with delicious (and free!) food and shiny prizes.

Anybody with an interest in technology can attend and expect a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. You certainly don't have to be a programmer or even know how to code.

About hackStoga

Join over a hundred hackers from around the tri-state area in attending hackStoga on March 16, 2024!

Whether you're a seasoned hacker (programmer) or you're new to tech, hackStoga is open to everyone! Create a project, learn new skills, attend workshops, and connect with friends at the event. (Did we mention? There's gonna be free food!)

Our Sponsors

A big thank you to our wonderful sponsors — especially our flagship sponsor, SIG. hackStoga would not be possible without them!

Where and when is the event?

hackStoga will take place Saturday March 16th, 2024 at Conestoga High School in our Atrium.

Do I have to bring anything?

Well, a laptop! We recommend that you bring a charger as well and your phone (especially if it has a hotspot). You may also want to download any programs or libraries you feel like you might need— just in case!

How much does hackStoga cost?

hackStoga is 100% free for all participants thanks to our wonderful sponsors!

Hey, I don't have any coding experience!

No worries, hackStoga is for everyone. In addition to mentors to help you get started, we'll have introductory programming classes, opportunities for artists, workshops, and more.

I'm a middle schooler/college student, can I come?

Sorry, hackStoga is a highschool event.

Teams & Projects

How big can teams be? Do I need a team?

You may participate in teams of 2-5 or solo (although we don't recommend this).

Will there be a theme?

hackStoga 24's theme will be announced at the event.

When can I start working on my project?

You can start work on your project as soon as hackStoga begins— that's right after the introductory presentation.

Can I work on a previous project?

No, all projects must be built from scratch. Although, you are welcome to brainstorm ideas ahead of time.

What libraries/languages can I use?

Any library, any language. You must also credit any significant amount of code not authored by you used in your project—whether they're libraries or StackOverflow responses.
