Take part in a disruptive hackathon at San Jose State University
Doors Open at 8am
Commit to the cause. Push for change.
Mitigating natural disasters is one of the world’s greatest challenges. The past decade has been one of the worst periods for natural disasters and while they may be inevitable they don’t have to become catastrophic.
That’s why we’re launching Call for Code, a worldwide, multi-year initiative that inspires developers to solve pressing global problems with sustainable software solutions.
Create applications with IBM Cloud technology that improve disaster preparedness and relief, build resilient communities, and safeguard the health and well-being of individuals and institutions.
Pretty much the coolest thing ever. Hackathons are competitions that will help you build connections and learn new skills. Here at SJ Hacks, participants will be in teams of up to four, all working on the same project. Utilizing various skillsets, teams will have the chance to prove themselves to various judges for the chance to win awesome prizes.
Don't bring any firearms, knives, weapons, drugs, or alcohol. Don't use an old project. Our team members will enforce this code throughout the event. We are expecting cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody. Basically be nice to everyone, which ensures that all guests have a positive experience at our hackathon!
Not at all! While some people may come with teams ready, many others will not have created teams yet, or may only have partial teams. Before the event begins, we will have a team building workshop for all participants who need teams.
You'll need a laptop, or some kind of device you can program on. Make sure to have your student ID for check-in!
SJHacks is free for all accepted hackers. We provide meals, caffeine, swag, workspace, and WiFi.
SJ Hacks is hosting its first hackathon for SJSU students only.
